Diss ready for carnival magic
Diss is set to be transformed into a magical wonderland when decorated floats take to the streets for the town's annual summer spectacular.
The town centre will come to a standstill on Sunday for the Diss carnival parade and family fun day.
Around 4,000 visitors and residents are set to line the streets for the procession, which will this year feature around 30 floats.
The parade, from 1pm, has become one of the biggest dates on the south Norfolk events calendar since it was resurrected four years ago.
This year's theme is fairy tales and nursery rhymes and the pageant will end in a fun day at Diss Town Football Club in Brewers Green Lane, which will kick off from 2pm.

Carnival co-ordinator Doreen Collins said the committee had their fingers crossed for sunny weather.
'Everything is in place and each year we learn from the mistakes of last year. It does cost us �5,000 a year to put on the event. We think we get about 4,000 coming into Diss on the day. A good attendance gives us a good foundation for next year,' she said.
