Hundreds of people braved the cold weather to attend the Aylsham Christmas lights switch-on in the Market Place.
Entertainment included live music and a performance by youngsters from the Sutton School of Dance.
Other attractions included food stalls and a barbecue, fairground rides, a Santa's Grotto in Red Lion Street and a display of 30 Christmas trees decorated by local charities and good causes in St Michael's Church.
Town council events officer Paul Smith said the lights switch-on brought the town together.
'Everyone turns out,' he added. 'There's a fantastic community spirit and I think everyone just has a brilliant time.'
