Hundreds lined the streets of Diss at the weekend as it was carnival time in the town.
The event, organised by Diss Town Council’s carnival committee, saw Hollywood come to town with stars of the big screen all over the place in the form of cutouts by the Mere or people dressed as the likes of Marvel superheroes, characters from The Wizard of Oz, Transformers, and stormtroopers who paraded through the town.
On Diss Park, there was a fun day, with stalls and entertainment including a Punch and Judy show and displays in the show ring – here are some of our pictures from the day:
Tammy Howard, carnival committee chairperson, said the carnival had once again been a huge success.
She said: “It was a fantastic day and an incredible atmosphere in the town. The streets were full of families enjoying the parade, smiling, waving and laughing – the efforts and creativity that went into the floats never fails to wow everyone.
“The Fun Day was also a big hit – the celebrities around the Mere were very popular as was the live Oscar statue and walkabout acts. What is especially lovely to see is how carnival brings together the whole community.”
A spokesperson for Diss Town Council said the feedback from the special day had been incredible.
They added: “The carnival would not be possible without the support from our local businesses who get involved with the window dressing competition or sponsor the event, everyone who attends as a stallholder, entertainment acts, parade floats, volunteers, Tammy, her vice-chairperson Son French, and the whole committee and and of course everyone who turns out for the carnival – we thank you all.”
