PICTURE GALLERY: Sheringham Carnival parade

The long-awaited high point of nine days of carnival fun did not disappoint this evening as Sheringham revelled in a riot of colour.

Thousands lined the streets for the parade, which came at the end of a packed series of events that are already being seen as a great success.

Led by a clutch of Harley Davidson motorbikes, the parade including fancy floats and scores of people walking in costumes.

Plenty of people dressed as pirates to reflect the carnival's theme of the sea.

There were also jellyfish, ladybirds, witches, sailors and a host of people dressed in the red-and-white stripes of the Where's Wally cartoons.

And the Peterborough Pipe Band and the Norwich Samba Band provided some harmonious entertainment as they joined the parade as it snaked through the streets.

Remarkably, the rain stayed away throughout - despite brooding clouds passing over and around the town at regular intervals.

And Sheringham Churches Together harnessed the combined power of prayer and mechanical expertise to start the engine of their van, just in time for their pirate-themed group to join the parade.

The nine-day carnival was set to end in the evening with a spectacular fireworks display on Sheringham beach.
