Morris dancers drew bemused looks from shoppers on their May Day parade through King’s Lynn.
Blowing ox horns, they carried a garland surrounding a baby doll through the streets to ward off evil spirits.
The unique tradition is believed to have started around 100 years ago.
Beforehand, the 10-strong King's Morris danced up the dawn on Knights Hill Roundabout - one of Norfolk's highest points.
Squire Winston Williams said: “It's gone excellently, we saw the sun come up. The May garland is the reason we're here today. It's an ancient tradition, certainly going bank to the 19th Century.”
He added the ranks of the morris side had been swelled by the decision two years ago to become a unisex dance troupe.
