The streets and harbourfront in Dildo, Trinity Bay are alive with activity today (July 20) as Dildo Days 2014 events continue.

Early this afternoon, the popular bicycle parade took place, with dozens of young people and their family members winding their way along the waterfront to the Society of United Fishermen building parking lot.

And for the first time in many years, dory racing is expected to make a return this afternoon.

Meanwhile, here are some images from the bicycle parade.
