Nearly 30 youngsters braved bank holiday weekend showers, to take part in Sheringham's annual Easter bonnet competition and parade.
After a morning of persistent rain, the clouds lifted just in time for the afternoon event, which was organised by Ladybird Pre-school Nursery and Sheringham Playpark Revamp Group.
Entrants lined up on Otterndorf Green for judging by a team led by town mayor Mark Hill, who handed first prize to nine-year-old Florrie Robins for her spring-inspired top hat.
Ladybird administrator Helen Jewers thanked all those who supported the event, including Sheringham carnival volunteers, town crier Andrew Cunningham, who led the parade, and Starlings toy shop, which provided prizes.
She added: 'We had a brilliant turnout and, despite the downpour, the true Sheringham spirit shone through.'
