This year's Worstead Festival has been hailed "huge success", with around 10,000 people turning out to the two-day celebration of rural life.
Now in its 54th year, the event, which was first held to raise cash for urgently-needed repairs to Worstead church, raises thousands for local good causes.
Boasting a packed programme featuring fun for all the family, the event got off to spectacular start on Saturday with a parade led by a giant-sized ram puppet created by children at the village primary school.
Other attractions ranged from sheep shearing and terrier racing, to a farmers market and a cookery theatre.
Festival trustee Sam Outing said the site had been busy on both days, with stalls doing a brisk trade and a children's hub attracting a steady stream of youngsters.
"There was a really positive, feel-good atmosphere and, with the bonus of Norfolk Day and the beginning of the school holidays, people really turned out to show their support," he added.
