Organisers hailed the sixth annual Diss carnival a success with attractions ranging from Morris dancers to a US Airforce dog display team drawing the crowds.
Celebrations got under way with live music in Diss Park on Saturday night and the carnival started on Sunday morning with Morris dancers performing in the town centre.
The parade, which had a historical theme, began at 1pm in Roydon Road and travelled around the town before arriving at the football ground.
Floats included the six wives of Henry VIII, the little ships of Dunkirk and the history of children's television.
Organiser Doreen Collins said: 'It has been absolutely fantastic and I feel it has been a lot busier this year.
