Reflecting on the first day, Carnival chairman Tony Shipp said: 'It's been a good day, we've had a good turnout for the car boot - the earliest one, I think, arrived about 4.30am; there has been a huge number of dogs in the dog show, which is popular; and the Cromer bake-off, which was a first, was very well supported. The winners all did very well and are all to be congratulated.
'We've had full houses with regards the craft show so we've had a really good day and looking forward to it continuing the rest of the week.'
