Hundreds of people have enjoyed the sunshine as they celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in Caister.
The seaside village held a picnic in the park and jubilee mini-market event at the playing field this afternoon.
The events will be followed by an evening beach barbecue on the dunes next to the lifeboat station.
The crew will be selling hot food and there will be a licensed bar and music from about 7pm.
And at 9.45pm, a beacon will be lit accompanied by a piper playing a tune specially written for the jubilee.
It is the first time Caister Parish Council and Caister Lifeboat have teamed up to organise an event in the village.
Kevin Wood, who serves on both organisations, said about 1,000 people had attended the playing field picnic in the park and mini-market.
He added: "It went really well and was really busy."
