Thousands of people have flocked to the Sheringham Classic Car Show, despite the seaside town's High Street still being closed to vehicles because of a sinkhole.
Mayor Madeleine Ashcroft and deputy mayor Liz Withington said they was thrilled that despite the ongoing road closure since the sinkhole appeared on My 26, there was a strong interest in the 600 classic cars and 150 motorbikes on display on Sunday.
Mrs Withington said: "Sadly we still have two businesses closed and the whole community feels great sympathy for them but Sheringham showed the town can overcome adversity and make the best of a difficult situation.
"The town now looks forward to the Potty Festival with hundreds of Morris dancers descending on the town from the UK and Europe on the July 6 and 7, and at the end of July the Harley Davidson Ride out and 150 bikes roaring through the town."
A Rover took the Richard Williams Prize and a Ford Capri was best in show.
