Sheringham's annual Potty Morris and Folk Festival ended on a high note on Sunday, with sunny skies bringing crowds out in their hundreds.
After the event was hit by heavy showers on Saturday, the skies cleared for the final day on Sunday, with dancers performing at various spots around the town, and at the main arena on Lifeboat Plain.
More than 40 sides took part, including festival regulars Pig Dyke Molly, from Peterborough, Loose Women, from Kent, and Cotswolds side New St George.
Festival chairman Clive Rayment, who has been involved in the event since it was founded in 1993, said that although poor weather on the opening day had been a disappointment, the programme had gone a head as planned.
"I think the festival has been a big success," he added. "Everybody really enjoyed it and nobody seemed to mind the rain - it's what morris dancers are used to."
