Across the county businesses large and small are preparing to take part in Norfolk Day.
From family fun days, to special deals and promotions, on Norfolk Day, -Saturday July 27- dozens of businesses around the county will be playing their part in the biggest celebration of Norfolk life there is.
On the Norfolk Broads, Lathams of Potter Heigham will be putting on an "action packed" day of entertainment for all the family.
Kicking off at 9am family friendly activities will include children's entertainment, food and drink tastings including a selection from Woodfords Brewery and craft workshops courtesy of First Stalham Sea Scouts.

Planning how to decorate your Norfolk Day event is a task which will be made a whole lot easier by visiting the official Norfolk Day shop.
Featuring bunting, flags, celebration packs, banners and more, the shop has everything you need to not only accessorise your Norfolk Day event but also to tell everyone else about it, with customisable posters available as part of our celebration packs.
And, with just one month to go until Norfolk Day - which this year will take place on Saturday, July 27 - it's not too late to start planning how to mark the big day.
Last year, people threw garden parties, bake sales, attempted a world record and held picnics, businesses opened their doors to the public, passed on new skills and organisations got involved too by hosting exhibitions and more.
