Ahead of the event, Lowestoft Vision promised a "particularly memorable" showing for those in the town.

The group had invested in brand new lighting, as well as an array of attractions, to entertain the crowds gathered in the town centre.

With the festivities getting under way at 1pm with a range of street entertainment, including a special appearance from Father Christmas and an Elf on the Shelf competition, crowds were treated to an afternoon of Christmas joy.

Cast members in this year's Marina Theatre pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs were also on hand to meet fans, as well as reindeers from Scratby Garden Centre.

Local band Slick Division were also on the bill to perform their charity single Fractured to raise money for mental health community fund Back 2 Life.
