Carnival organisers in Sheringham have moved the popular parade to the final day of this year's week-long festival to coincide with the grand fireworks finale.

Nearly six months ahead of the main Carnival Day, the committee are already building up a packed programme including a battle of the bands and the annual aquackic duck race.

The build up begins on May 4 with the Carnival Queen selection at the Crown Inn and a car boot sale on July 21.

Carnival week kicks off on August 1 with a variety of events taking place all day including the crowning of the queen by television chef Chris Coubrough.

The main Carnival Day takes place on Wednesday, August 4 where the streets of Sheringham will throng with entertainers, stalls and music - but without the usual parade of floats.

That has been moved to the final day of festivities, taking place on Saturday, August 7. A tug of war, five-a-side football and Nick Lee's Family Circus will keep families entertained during the day with the parade kicking off from Sheringham Common at 6.30pm.
