Organisers of the first ever Suffolk Fun Festival over the weekend hope the successful event could become a regular fixture in the Easton Farm Park calendar.
Hundreds of people headed to the attraction, near Woodbridge, over Saturday and Sunday to enjoy a host of family activities and make the most of some splendid summer sunshine.
Easton Farm Park manager Fiona Siddall said the event had gone really well and everyone had been very happy with the reception from those attending, including campers making the most of the grounds over the weekend.
She said: “We’re very happy – there was lots going on over the two days. It’s been a big hit.
“We didn’t want it too hot so the weather’s been very kind to us. We’re thrilled.
“I think judging from the feedback and how it’s gone, we will definitely do it again.
“It fits very nicely with what we already do.”
