Thousands of people enjoyed this year’s Mile Cross Community Festival and Classic Car Show, despite a couple of downpours during the day.

The event, now in its 31st year, took place at Sloughbottom Park, off Drayton Road, from noon until 4pm yesterday.

Fans of classic cars enjoyed a treat, with members of the Norwich Classic Vehicles Club among car owners from around the country proudly showing off about their lovingly looked after vehicles.

For youngsters, there were bouncy castles to be leapt about on, inflatable slides to zoom down, go-karts to power around in and aqua boats to float in.

The Punch and Judy show was also a big hit with children, as were the workshops offered by the Foolhardy Circus.

See Monday’s Evening News and website for a full report and more pictures from the event, which was organised by the Mile Cross Community Association.

  • What ignorant & offensive comments from stevjo and chebram1 I'd bet they never attended so have no idea what their talking about! Must be so sad to have to leave such comments. Just shows how ignorant some people can be.
