HUNDREDS of school children are being treated to a day out at the seaside thanks to the Glasgow Taxi Outing Fund.
The annual trip sees a convoy of colourfully decorated taxis head down from the city to the beach at Troon.
Most of the drivers had also dressed up for the occasion, with Wonder Woman, Snow White and the Mario Brothers in attendance.
They set off mid-morning from Kelvin Way, with a pipe band and balloon release to see them off.
Celtic legend Tom Boyd, a long-time supporter of the charity, was also at the start point.

Stephen Flynn, chairman of Glasgow Taxis, said: “You see it in the kids’ faces and the way they look forward to it and enjoy it every year.
“The drivers have got to be applauded, they’ve turned out in force yet again. A lot of people put a lot of effort into this.”
Since the outings began in 1945, it is estimated that over 60,000 have benefited from the trips.
Event organisers thanked the taxi drivers, Glasgow public and the people of Troon for all their help and generosity.
