Meeting meerkats, bopping to music and bouncing in an inflatable castle were all part of the fun at North Walsham's Children's Day.
The bank holiday event saw hundreds flock to the town's St Nicholas Church to enjoy balloon modelling, bell ringing, a quiz trail, face painting and more.
The day was organised by town councillor Robert Murphy, Rev Paul Cubitt and Matthew Smith of North Walsham Play.
Murphy said he was delighted the community had got behind the event.
He said: 'We a pleased to have organised an event that gives families a change to enjoy a local and cheap afternoon of fun.'
Live music - organised by the Music Hut - included Twos Company, Helen Bluebelle, Tap the Barrel and Those Deadbeat Cats.
Rob Scammell and Michelle Foulkes ran a barbecue and the Animal Experience group was there giving visitors the chance to get up close and personal with animals including meerkats and snakes.
