A giant ant, a mermaid and a pod of dolphins were among the designs dreamed up by youngsters and families taking part in Sheringham carnival's sandcastle and sculpture contest.
The event was part of the final day's programme, which also featured a chalk-a-picture competition and a model boat contest which saw children of all ages race boats made from paper templates and create craft of their own design.
The winning sand sculpture entry was a giant ice cream cone created by a children and adults' team made up of five local families.
Carnival queen Abigail Dowsett-Olby, who judged the competition with the help of attendants Natasha Grand and Chloe Hambling said picking the winners was a challenge.
'The adults seemed to enjoy themselves just as much as the children,' she added. 'There was a brilliant turnout and it was extremely tricky to decide as there were so many great entries.'
