David Baines, of the Ee By Drum drummers' group, which performed, said: "The party went extremely well after starting quietly because of the early rain."
The event was held to mark the royal wedding, centenary of Saltburn Scouts and the town's 150th anniversary. A dozen stalls were manned by local firms, organisations and entertainers like a bouncy castle and bucking bronco.
