Cromer Carnival’s family day saw crowds turn out in force for a fun-filled programme of entertainment featuring attractions ranging from music and magic, to dancing, drumming and donkey rides.



Organised by a team led by carnival committee member Leanne Knight, the event also featured a spectacular formation display by Wildcat Aerobatics, as well as a full programme of arena events, including an aerial show from circus company Above and Beyond, a stunt bike and parkour show, heavy horse demonstrations and a display by the East Anglian Working Newfoundland Dogs.

Events and attractions around the carnival field included a climbing wall, a 999 show from local police, ambulance, RNLI and Coastguard personnel, games sessions run by Cromer Sports Centre Staff and shows from children’s entertainers Chilly the Clown, Crazy Bananas, Twist ‘n’ Shape by the Sea and Razz the Clown and Auntie Pearl.

Ms Knight, who has helped organised the family day since it was first held three years ago, said: “The idea is to have things that are entertaining for children, but which aren’t too costly and I think everybody really enjoyed it as we saw lots of happy, smiling faces.”
