The traditional parade on Gala Fest Monday was the crown jewel in a bumper weekend of activities fit for all the family - from sporty challenges, to live music and a craft fair.

Featuring a sea of colourful floats and fancy dress, the parade started on Station Road and made its way up to the Castle Meadow via the Market Hill.

The theme for 2019 was 'Sand, Sea & Surf' and prizes were awarded for the best decorated entries.

The Duathlon, a fun challenge for all abilities, took place at Framlingham Sports Club on Saturday, May 25, and featured a 2k and 5k runs and a 16k bike ride - with one team member taking on one section of the race.
