Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden, South Walsham staged its annual Green Festival with a busy day of entertainment and fun environmental activities.
Visitors explored South Walsham broad on the Primrose, went on alpaca ambles and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the Pedant's Revolt morris dancers and the Dixieland Jazz Trio.
Coracle maker Jason Kidman demonstrated his skills, there were close encounters with owls from the Hawking Experience and traditional punch and judy shows.
Families had fun with green man clay play, made bath bombs in Hand Made Norfolk Soap's, 'The Soapbox', a converted horsebox making its event debut, and had a go at making pottery.
Stevie Spud ran his annual circus skills workshop and there was a children's Butterfly Trail round the garden. Children even mixed their own smoothies on the bicycle powered smoothy maker from Salhouse Broad.
