Youngsters sporting headgear with themes ranging from spring flowers to chicks and rabbits delighted Sheringham shoppers, when they marched through the town centre as part of a traditional Easter Bonnet parade.
Jointly organised by Sheringham Playpark Revamp Group and Ladybird Pre-school Nursery, the event included face painting and games, as well as a cake sale and a visit from the Easter Bunny, who handed out chocolate treats.
Entrants lined up for judging by town mayor Madeleine Ashcroft and deputy mayor Liz Withington, who handed first prize to six-year-old Poppy Brennan for her unicorn and fairy-themed creation.
Second prize went to four-year-old Thomas Ward, for his giant carrot hat, with five-year-old Harry Brown bagging third prize for his dinosaur island topper.
Ladybird administrator Helen Jewers thanked all those who had supported the event, including Sheringham Carnival Association and Starlings toy shop, which donated prizes.
'It was wonderful to see so many children taking part and to see people stopping to watch as we went past,' she said. 'The parade is really more about being part of the community – any money we raise is a bonus.'
