Corton carnival and fete draws big crowd

More than a 1,000 people flocked to Corton, near Lowestoft, today to get in the party mood by joining in the village's third annual carnival and fete.

The day started off with a colourful collection of 15 floats processing through Corton before the final destination of the village playing field.

In the field families enjoyed a wide range of fun activities and displays, including zorb balling, belly dancers, singers, tag rugby, tug of war and zumba dancing.

Ryan Holt, from the organising committee, said the day had gone very well and that next year it would be extended to two days.

Tonight sees live music on the playing fields with food and drink available.
