There were plenty of smiling faces on show as families could be seen foraging for clues during an annual Easter egg trail organised by the Lowestoft Lions.
Mums, dads, grandparents and hundreds of youngsters, many wearing Easter bunny ears and bonnets, scoured Sparrow's Nest gardens in search of vital hints needed to secure one of the 550 Easter egg prizes on offer.
Ali Gillings, 39, from Lowestoft, said: 'It has been really good fun. It's the first time we have been and we have all really enjoyed it.
'The children have been able to answer all the questions, which has been good, although their dad might have enjoyed it a little more than they did- he has become quite competitive!'
She added: 'I think events like this help boost community spirit and it's nice to get people out and about - especially doing something like this which is physical. We will definitely be coming again next year!'

Each child, participating in the egg trail, was required to correctly complete a quiz sheet using clues they discovered on the trail before their quiz sheet could be exchanged for a fantastic Easter egg treat.
As well as the ever popular free Easter egg trail attendees were able to enjoy a range of rides, stalls and a road show by children's entertainers K-Syl-R at the event, held on Easter Sunday.

Event organiser Mark Lanham said: 'Today has been really good and its great to see everybody taking part in the Easter egg trail and all the games being organised by the Lions and the road show as well.
'It looks like numbers are going to be similar to last year which is good to see. The event has been going on for about the last 15 years and keeps going from strength to strength.
'It's just a great opportunity for grandparents, parents and children to have fun together and it is great for the community.'
