The organisers of Lauder's Common Riding are coming under fire for allowing a Jimmy Savile themed float to enter their fancy dress parade last week.
The stunt has attracted criticism from some people in the town as well as politicians and victims of abuse.
However, the committee say they do not censor entries and it is up to people to make their own moral choices about what they put in the parade.
