A LARGE crowd turned out to see a colourful carnival procession from Ipswich's Cornhill to Christchurch Park today.
The sixth Ipswich Community Carnival saw plenty of music, dance, and performances by artists, and hundreds came out in force to join in the fun.
As part of a national celebration for the handing over of the Olympics, guests at the county council's headquarters in Endeavour House were treated to a display by the Suffolk School of Samba and an extract from Romeo and Juliet performed by the Red Rose Chain theatre company. Olympic veteran Stan Cox, of Felixstowe, was also there to speak about his sporting experiences.
At the Cornhill the Olympic flag was given to the Mayor of Ipswich and flown on top of the Town Hall.
The fun day continued at Christchurch Park, where there were plenty of community stalls, refreshments and children's activities like face painting.
