SMURFS, super heroes, cowboys and other colourful characters lined the streets for a sponsored walk.
Passers-by were amused by a party of walkers in fancy dress who walked from Johnstown to Llangollen.
But the event had a serious side as it was to help the Huntington’s Disease Association Wrexham branch, with many participants having known people affected by the condition.
More than £300 was raised for the cause.
Organiser Sion Davies said: “We think the event helped spread the message and helped to raise awareness of the condition.
“The response we had from people was very good.”
Mr Davies said the group attracted interest after it met at the New Inn, Johnstown, to begin the walk.
He said: “A few laughs were exchanged on what we were all wearing by many passers-by.
“So, without any more embarrassment, we dished out badges and buckets and then set off.”
The group made stops on the way at venues in Ruabon, Cefn Mawr and Trevor, before the final stretch saw them walk several miles alongside the canal.
“The surprised look on many holidaymakers faces in their narrowboats was a picture,” said Mr Davies.
“They couldn't believe where we had come from and where we were going to in one day.”
He added: “The whole day was a great success. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and we raised a grand total of £320 in the buckets.
“I would like to say a big thank you to all the kind support and donations from all the pubs, shops and the general public.”
Huntington’s Disease is caused by a faulty gene which is passed down through families.
If an individual has one parent with the Huntington’s Disease gene, he or she has a 50/50 chance of inheriting the gene and developing the condition themselves.
It causes damage to the nerve cells in the brain.
As the damage progresses, the function of the affected areas of the brain deteriorates and symptoms develop, including reducing people’s ability to walk, talk, think and communicate.
