The first in a series of five Big Wednesdays gets underway in Great Yarmouth this evening.
Starting at 5.30pm a trio of giant eyeball puppets will entertain fun-seekers on the town's famous Golden Mile, returning at 9pm for a second performance.
The puppeteers, from the Netherlands, are part of a host of free entertainment planned for each Wednesday in August including oversized blue birds who will stalk Marine Parade for the second half of the month.
The evenings all end with a sky-painting firework display at 10pm.
The i-puppets from Close Act Theatre are described as "a big visual display not to be missed". The events are funded by Visit Great Yarmouth and delivered by Out There Arts.
Big Wednesdays are being staged on August 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31 with two performances each evening and fireworks at 10pm.
