It was all smiles and rainbows at Eyre Park on Saturday, despite a light drizzle of rain, as Albany Pride hosted its We Are Family Picnic as part of its two-week festival.

There was plenty to do, with balloon creations of all kinds, giant bubbles, oversized jenga and plenty of streamers for the little ones.
