Stranraer's first oyster festival attracted over 10,000 visitors at the weekend.
Organisers say the event was a 'massive success that exceeded all expectations'.
Stranraer Oyster Festival saw a number of performances, demonstrations and events over three days.
This included a giant seafood paella made by John Henry of Henrys Bay House Restaurant.
Many were tasted by people who had never eaten them before, including local children.
Market stall holders at the event are said to have completely sold out of goods.
Accommodations are also believed to have been fully booked within 20 miles of Stranraer.

The festival also hosted the Scottish Oyster Shucking Championship in partnership with Seafood Scotland.
The competition saw Tristan Hugh-Jones of Loch Ryan Oysters win the title.
