It could be mistaken for the North Pole.
But this was actually an afternoon jam-packed with festive cheer in Attleborough for the annual Christmas light switch on and carnival.
The event, which took place at Queen's Square and ran from 1pm to 6pm on Sunday, November, 24, has happened every year since 1988 and is a big event in the calendar for the town.
This year, revellers were treated to fun rides, delicious food from local businesses, arts and craft stalls and a Christmas grotto.
Families and children huddled around the giant Christmas tree, which was erected just last week, to enjoy a carol service performed by elves.
