Dozens enjoy Sheringham carnival’s aquackic duck race
Dozen of spectators lined-up along a Sheringham river bank today (Friday) to quack-on toy ducks as part of the town's carnival aquackic duck race.
The event took place on the beck at the back of Beeston Common and saw around 600 yellow rubber ducks brave the swim to the finish line.
Sheringham carnival chairman Stuart McClean said it had been good to see members of the community getting involved with the event.
He said: 'It's a bit of harmless fun and nothing too complicated.
'We have already begun looking towards next year and how we can make the duck race even bigger - including asking people to take their ducks home before the event to decorate them.'
