Hunstanton Carnival 2009 by Viv Walker

Hunstanton & District Arts Festival - SUMMER 2012

The Hunstanton Arts Festival is an annual event designed for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike. At the height of the summer these Norfolk events include the annual Kite Festival and the Carnival Parade & Fete (organised by Hunstanton Rotary Club). Once the summer season has closed, the winter programme will take over to include the firework spectacular on the cliff tops, the traditional switch on of the town's Christmas lights and the annual Christmas Day Swim.
