There will be thrills, spills – and perhaps even a few unplanned splashes.
But with more than 10 hours of entertainment in store, the Lowestoft Lions club is promising another action-packed day of fun for all the family at their annual Gala Day in Oulton Broad.
The Lions' main charity event of the year takes place once more on Nicholas Everitt Park on Bank Holiday Monday, August 29.
Topping the bill at this year's event are the Vander Brothers with their spectacular aerial double Wheel of Death show.
Other attractions in the main arena include fun and crazy circus tricks from Dangerous Steve, the canine antics from the popular Waggy Tails Dog Agility Display Team and displays by the Totally Wicked School of Dance and Broadwing's birds of prey.

There will be a full programme of supporting entertainment on stage including 17-year-old local singing star Jazmine Banks, the Lowestoft Signing Choir, the Oulton Broads harmony group and country music singer Sarah Underdown. A children's area will feature games with the K-Syl-R Disco and Professor Jingles Punch and Judy show.
On the water, the annual Maiden in Distress competition will see hand built 'boats' struggling to stay afloat on the broad as they aim to 'rescue' a stranded damsel.

This will be followed by powerboat racing from Lowestoft and Oulton Broad Motor Boat Club including three races for the classic Albatross class.
Suffolk based live band 'Breeze' will get the park rocking into the evening, as the all-day entertainment also includes Larry Gray's Funfair and the usual wide range of stalls, food outlets and a beer tent.
Lowestoft's only public firework display of the year will be set off at 9pm from a pontoon on the Broads. They will light up the sky in an explosive and colourful pyrotechnic spectacle, which will be a fitting way to bring the curtain down on the event.
With the Lions hoping for a big turn-out to boost the sum that they raise for good causes, Lowestoft Lions President Robin Smith said: 'We have arranged a feast of varied entertainment, with the full day of fun carrying on into the evening with a popular local band on stage to rock the night away before the fireworks finale at 9pm.
'The Lions Gala Day committee works non-stop to bring this event to you and are indebted to the individuals, companies and advertisers who also help to make it possible.'
The park opens at 9am and admission to the event, including a free programme, is £6 for adults and £1 for children.
