Bungay is gearing up for its third annual duck race.
The event will be held at Falcon Meadow, between Bungay and Ditchingham, on Sunday, July 9.
Falcon Meadow was purchased by the community three years ago and money raised from the event will help aid the wildlife resource and public amenity space.
Local businesses are able to sponsor large ducks which they decorate for a best-dressed competition before racing on the river. The competition was won last year by Geraldine Cosgrove, proprietor of the Little Green Wholefood Shop.
Simon Thompson, chairman of Bungay Events and Business Association (BEBA) and a duck sponsor, said: 'The race brings people into the town, and highlights what a pro-active community this is.
