Motorcycle display teams and husky racing will be some of the new attractions this year at Breckland Family Show on Watton airfield on Monday, May 2.
The show is organised by the Rotary Club, and as it celebrates its centenary year, an extra effort is being made to make the day special.
The show will be opened by Rob and Chrissie from Broadland 102, who will arrive in the station's new Black Thunder Helicopter.
The big new attraction will be the Bolddog Lings Freestyle Team, a motorcycle display team. Weather permitting, there also be a mountain stunt bike display, dog agility, free rides on Ben Burford's Land Train and East Coast Truckers, who will let visitors Drive a Juggernaut.
The show will feature all the usual attractions including a car boot sale, food stalls, beer tent, trade and charity stands and craft fair. There will be a veteran and classic car display, including agricultural machinery, military vehicles and bikes, plus gliders, helicopter rides, model boats and railways.
Music will include a New Orleans Marching Band, a school band from Newmarket, country music and can-can, morris and line dancing.
