Crowds are gathering for tonight’s Cromer carnival parade
Crowds are already staking their claims to the best vntage points for tonight's Cromer carnival parade.
Today is the crowning jewel of the Cromer carnival festivities - with hundreds of people flocking to see exciting displays including aerobatic teams and falconry performances.
The sun has drawn carnival-goers out in full force - the sunglasses are on and yesterday's raincoats are a distant memory.
Excitement is building for tonight's crescendo which will see revellers enjoy the grand parade and fancy dress.
Some families are already - at 5pm - perched on the parish church wall to get one of the grandstand views of the procession which sets off at 7pm.
Carnival chairman Tony Shipp said: 'We have got a good crowd building up and it's going very well so far. I am looking forward to a really good day.
'After yesterday everybody is taking advantage of a nice fun day and making the most of it.'

Today's picture is painted in rather more brighter colours than yesterday's grey and gloomy day.
Families are making the most of the excitement the carnival offers - spectators clung to the sides of the main arena fascinated with the performance the intrepid motorcycle team 'The White Helmets' gave.
All sorts of treats including ice creams, sweets and crepes are being sold to keep visitors going while many children are enjoying the military vehicle displays - clambering on top to have their pictures taken.
This evening's events include the judging of the floats and fancy dress at 5.45pm and the grand parade starting at 7pm.
