Hundreds of people enjoyed a sunny day out at Beccles Quay full of live music, family activities, and the hotly-contested annual duck and raft races.
Organised by Beccles Rugby Club, the popular event in the town yesterday saw crowds line the river to see hundreds of brightly-coloured ducks race to the finish line.
Club chairman Gareth Hadridge said: 'It has been really good. A tremendous amount of work goes into organising it but it gets everyone in Beccles together and shows just how great the town is.'
Town business supported the event by entering a large duck into the commercial race, which was won by Twyfords, while the public race saw a duck named 'Buttons' cross the finish line first.
