Revellers get ready for Sheringham Carnival parade
Final preparations are being made to costumes and floats as revellers get ready to enjoy Sheringham's carnival parade.
A full weekend of activities is lined up, including a family fun day on Cookie's Field at Beeston Regis today and the centrepiece of the week - the parade on Sunday afternoon.
Despite some persistent showers to start the weekend, carnival chairman Stuart McClean said the theme so far had been 'lovely sunshine'.
He said: 'We've got the sunshine attitude and I hope the weather matches us this weekend.'
Mr McClean said the parade would be headed by 250 Harley Davidson motorbikes, whose riders visited the town for a rally last weekend and were asked to come back to add some va-va-voom to the parade.

He said the parade would also include Peterborough Pipe Band, with Norwich Samba Band adding some glamour at the rear.
Mr McClean said: 'We hope that people will keep smiling and use plenty of suncream.'
