Scotland's annual Gaelic festival is being held in the Renfrewshire town for the first time in its 121-year history.
And youngsters from Cardonald Primary School, on the South Side of Glasgow, were on hand to get the event off to a flying start.
The nine-day £2.5million cultural festival is expected to bring more than 8000 visitors to the town.
Organised by An Comunn Gàidhealach, The Mòd, as it is known, is a competition-based event which attracts dancers, pipers, musicians, singers and from around the world.
Around 3000 competitors have registered for the Mòd's various competitions.
Pupils from Cardonald Primary's choir, including Mya Brown, 10, and 11-year-old Allister Macdonald, are competing in the Mod for the first time.
The Mòd is held annually, changing location each year.
Pailsey has a significant Gaelic heritage, and John Morrison, chief executive of the Mòd's organisers, An Comunn Gàidhealach, said it is important that is recognised.
He explained: "A lot of people think Paisley doesn't have a Gaelic heritage, which is completely wrong.
"A great many Highlanders and Gaelic speakers came to Paisley to find work.
"There's a Gaelic chapel in Paisley, a Gaelic cemetery, at one stage there was even a shinty team.
"Paisley has a strong Gaelic heritage and we'd like to recover that. We want to leave a legacy."
On Friday night, a spectacular torchlight parade down Paisley High Street kicked-off Scotland's annual Gaelic festival.
The Renfrewshire town is hosting a double festival fortnight, with The Mòd running until Saturday, alongside The Spree, Scotland's national arts festival.
The Spree, which is taking place in The Spiegeltent in County Square, offers arts, music and comedy fans a range of shows.
Last Saturday, popular traditional music duo Phil Cunningham and Aly Bain performed to a sell-out crowd in the town.
