A festival celebrating the best of the Broads starts this weekend.
The seventh Broads Outdoors Festival takes place from April 30 to May 21, with nearly 100 activities celebrating the Broads National Park.
The official launch of the festival took place at the Waveney River Centre yesterday.
Jacquie Burgess, from the Broads Authority said: 'It has been great watching how the festival has grown over the years. It is a special place and it offers many opportunities for local people and visitors to get their own special experiences from the Broads.
With more than a quarter of the rarest wildlife in the UK, 300 kilometres of footpaths and 122 miles of rivers the park provides something for everyone who loves to get out and about, on land or water.
The first event on Sunday will be the Tour De Broads South.
