Photo Gallery: Lowestoft Lions’ annual gala day
It is one of the highlights of the Waveney calendar as hundreds of people proved yesterday as they turned out to enjoy this year's Oulton Broad Gala Day.
Lowestoft Lions' main charity event of the year took place at Nicholas Everitt Park and included more than 10 hours of entertainment.
This year's programme boosted powerboat racing and the annual 'maiden in distress' raft-race out on the water, as well as a variety of attractions in the park.
Some of the main acts included daredevil stunt riders from the MAD – mountainbike aerial display – team, the Kangaroo gymnastic display team, the IDC Diamonds Cheerleading Club, and the Lowestoft Alsatian and Dog Training Society.
Live music was also performed by the Ipswich Youth Steel Band, a Robbie Williams tribute show by Lee Pashley, the Waveney Valley Brass Ensemble and a display from the Totally Wicked School of Dance.

There will also be Lowestoft's only public firework display this evening at 9pm.
The Gala Day is an annual event that has been organised by Lowestoft Lions for the last 17 years and the proceeds go to local charities.
