Family fun took centre stage at Britain's most easterly point as an inaugural event was hailed a success.
About 150 creative people turned out to decorate Ness Point in Lowestoft as a chalk festival enthused families.
With some "fab art" and "really lovely designs" created, artists of all ages joined in with the event organised by The Ness - the UK's most easterly park - on Saturday, September 14.
Running from 10am to 4pm at Ness Point Euroscope, the free event attracted a fine turnout as some stunning street art was created.
Jo Leverett, the events and marketing co-ordinator for The Ness, said: "It was really lovely.
