The first day of the Ipswich Maritime Festival 2019 went out with a bang as spectacular fireworks illuminated skies over the town’s Waterfront.
Thousands of people lined the water's edge at Orwell Quay to catch a glimpse of the display, which was held on Saturday night - as has become tradition since the festival returned as an annual event in 2017.
Crowds were dazzled by the fireworks show, which organisers hope will play a part in drawing in record numbers for the popular festival.

It rounded off an action-packed day at the Waterfront, which saw Captain Jack Sparrow entertain fans outside the University of Suffolk.
Up to 75,000 people are expected to attend the festival over the weekend.
