A Viking ship, a Back to the Future time machine and a 1980s-style roller skate were among the crazy contraptions trundling through Sheringham town centre as part of the annual carnival street races, which saw crowds in their hundreds line the pavements to pelt competitors with flour-filled paper bags and water bombs.
Street race regular Kevin Pitcher took the adult and child category title for the fourth year running for his Knight Rider cart based on the 1980s TV series, also teaming up with pal Nick Slade to bag the adults' race cup.
Childrens' race title was taken by Tallulah Derby, 13, and Lily Dewing, 12, with Emma-Louise Glover and Emily Oakley named waiters and waitresses' race winners and Adam Groom and Emma White winning the office chair race.
Carnival chairman Stuart McClean said: 'It's been magnificent and the response from the public has been fantastic.'
