Sheringham Carnival kicked off in style, when more than 400 motorcycles roared into town in a two-and-a-half-mile Harley Davidson convoy.
Now in its seventh year, the annual spectacle is organised by Sheringham carnival events manager Graham Deans with Harley Owners Group Fenlanders chapter members co-ordinating the ride, which follows the coast road from Fakenham.
An estimated 5,000 lined the streets to watch at Sheringham, as Harley owners from as far afield as Suffolk and Essex were welcomed by town mayor Madeleine Ashcroft and town crier Andrew Cunningham.
'The event just gets bigger every year,' Mr Deans said. 'I think the attraction is the noise, the immaculate presentation and the fact that every single Harley is different – I think we can safely say this is the biggest event of its kind in Norfolk.'
After travelling to Sheringham through Stiffkey, Cley and Weybourne accompanied by 52 outriders, riders lined their machines up along the high street, where they chatted to local people and holidaymakers before setting off to Holt.
