Jubilee celebrations were bathed in sunshine as crowds headed to Nicholas Everitt Park in Oulton Broad for a picnic in the park event.
The free event saw families enjoy a treasure hunt trail, craft fair and music from the bandstand featuring the Vibrations Roadshow, The Vibettes and Fiona Harber.
On the Broad, the Waveney and Oulton Broad Yacht Club arranged a special parade of boating.
Motor cruisers, yachts, sailing dinghies and a rib completed two laps with crews waving and sounding their horns.
Friday's event was organised by Oulton Broad Parish Council in association with the Nicholas Everitt Park Trust and the Lowestoft Lions Club.
Chair of Oulton Broad Parish Council, Sandra Keller, said: "The day went better than we had anticipated and, on behalf of the Nicholas Everitt Park Trust, it was nice to see so many people joining us to celebrate our Queen's 70th jubilee anniversary."
Lowestoft Lions president, John Swatton, said: "Our treasure trail saw 300 children taking part and seeking the answer to clues placed around the park to win a small bag full of treasure."
