An array of weird and wonderful acts are delighting festival-goers in Norwich's Chapelfield Gardens this weekend.
The festival's free Garden Party in the city park attracted large crowds yesterday, and the fun continues today.
Paka's impressive fire-breathing dragon, Elsie, is proving to be one of the stars of the weekend along with the fearless performers of the show Block who perform circus spectacle on a giant Jenga-style stage.
Other acts include the gravity defying Urban Astronaut and Corey Baker Dance's wacky show inspired by a red telephone box.
Today The Aurora Orchestra is also bringing music to the party. It is starting its Beethoven Safari at the city park at 12.30pm - performing excerpts from the great composer's Symphony No.5 in C minor, Op. 67 before also entertaining people at the Castle Mall and outside the Forum later this afternoon.

And, after it's first screening last night, Lawrence Bradby's Pedal-Powered Car Chase will return tonight to turn Chapelfield Gardens into an open air cinema from 9.30pm.
