The Appleby horse fair has so far been a success with very little disorder according to Cumbria Police.
The police say that everyone seems in good spirits and are all enjoying the occasion and sunny weather.
There has only been one arrest in the past 24 hours, which was for a minor disorder.
Police are now focusing on keeping everyone safe as thousands more travellers and visitors are expected over the weekend.
"It has been a great start to the fair, with everyone in a holiday spirit and people wanting to be here to enjoy themselves.
“This is a community and family orientated event which we encourage people to support and not bring their personal disputes to the fair. We want people to work with us to ensure a safe and enjoyable event.
“People are used to hearing cars and not horse’s, which can move very quickly.
“If you are visiting the fair be aware of fast moving horses, don’t walk on the roads and stick to the walkways.
