Families flocked to Fakenham market place for a festive afternoon in celebration of the Christmas light switch on and fayre.
Smiles were across the faces of everyone at the event as they marked the return of the town's Christmas celebration after a year without one.
People were treated to market stalls, food and local entertainment on stage from the junior school choir, the town band and Miss Amy's academy of dance.
There was also a magician and snow king and queen stilt walker in the crowd.
Town clerk Linda Jennings was on the committee who arranged the event and said: "It went extremely well, better than we could have ever imagined. I just want to say a massive thank you for everyone for turning up and supporting this event."
