The yearly event got underway on Monday as large crowds descended on the seaside town to soak up the carnival atmosphere and make the most of the good weather.
Hundreds of stalls lined the streets with local farm produce and homespun arts and crafts for sale - and specialties such as 'dulse' and 'yellow man' proved popular as ever.
Meanwhile busking musicians entertained and there were lots of family activities on offer including face painting and a rodeo bull ride.
The Auld Lammas Fair has been held in Ballycastle since the 17th Century.
It takes place on the last Monday and Tuesday of August and traditionally marks the end of the summer and beginning of the harvest.
Its exact origin is uncertain, but one theory is that it began as a result of the occupation of the area around Ballycastle by the MacDonnell's of the Isles in the early part of the 16th century.
