SPECTACULAR aerobatic displays were due to form the centrepiece of an extravaganza of fun in Bacton today.
The village's 2003 flower show, including a fun fair, various stalls and vintage cars, was set to attract up to 2,000 people.
Philip Jeffries, one of the organisers, said: "It's a traditional village show and it's pretty much the same as it was in the 1950s.
"It's a statement of rural life and it's about getting everyone together and involved."
Around 60 people made more than 500 entries in the flower and vegetable show, while scores of families enjoyed the various attractions, including the Microlease Aerobatic Display Team, kicked off at noon.
Tomorrow a parish lunch will be held in the marquee on the site, attended by television chef Patrick Anthony.
