Crowds lined the streets as an array of floats and walkers set off from the Recreation Ground.

They were led by Hunstanton Rainbows, Brownies and Guides - who had the best float trophy waiting for them when they arrived at the Green for their 101 Dalmations-inspired makeover of roofing contractor Neil Kenny's truck.

There were colourful costumes galore, vintage cars including a Battle of Britain-themed Mini, and a tribute to Hunstanton's RNLI hovercraft, lugged by Johnny Butler and members of the crew.

Best walkers award went to Hunstanton Sure Start nursery, who were presented with their trophy by the town's mayor Amanda Bosworth.
