Crowds flocked to Eye at the weekend as the annual Duck Race and Country Fair took top billing in the town on Saturday.
Visitors headed to the Pennings picnic area for the yearly race on the River Dove, and fair, organised by the 1st Eye Scout Group.
More than 500 ducks were coaxed along a slow-moving stretch of water up to the Abbey bridge, with chairman Merlin Carr giving a running commentary on the proceedings.
Family fun was provided by the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers with games, activities and competitions, with other stalls run by local groups and charities, while cash prizes were awarded to owners of the winning ducks.
