Attleborough Carnival and Party on the Park took place on July 7 and 8, with attractions such as an inflatable obstacle course and a Queen tribute band to draw the crowds in.

10-year-old Eloise Sharpe, who has a serious heart condition and cerebral palsy, and Louis Thorpe, 11, from Morley Church of England School, were crowned as carnival princess and prince at the Party on the Park Marquee on Saturday.

They got to travel with town mayor Vera Dale in a limousine at the SLM Toyota Carnival Parade on the Sunday.

The winner of best float entry in the parade was Zumba Lou Lou, a zumba school teaching in Old Buckenham.

Entertainment over the weekend also included performances by the New Buckenham Silver Band and the Dandini Punch and Judy Show.
