Watton Carnival hailed a big success
Fears of a wet weather wash out were allayed when hundreds of people enjoyed the annual carnival in Watton on Sunday.
Cheryl Clayton, secretary of the Watton Carnival Committee, said: 'It was a brilliant day.
'Many people were worried about the dreadful weather we've had all week, and I'd had a couple of calls from people asking if the carnival was still going to go ahead, but it all went really well and we didn't have a drop of rain.'
The historic event, which started in 1924, was opened by new deputy mayor Lorraine McCarthy.
There was a parade through the town, live music from the Watton Air Cadet band and other local musicians as well as fairground rides and many stalls.
