Lions Fun Day 2014.

Glorious sunshine helped to make the fun day organised by King’s Lynn Lions Club one of the best ever.

Peter Dixon, the club’s activities co-ordinator, said several thousand people turned out on Sunday to join the fun in The Walks.

“The weather is the one thing we cannot plan for, but it certainly was a glorious day,” said Mr Dixon.

“It brought people out and was one of the largest crowds in the 16 years of holding the fun day.

“People came out very early. We had the parade down the board walk led by the City of Norwich Pipe Band with the mayor and civic officers and about 300 members of various youth organisations following the parade into the arena,” he said.

A host of entertainment was held throughout the afternoon including a birds of prey display and dancing and cheerleading performances by local groups.

Organisations and charities manned their own stalls and Mr Dixon said: “I am sure everyone had a profitable afternoon.”

Children enjoyed taking part in a number of activities and the fun fair rides proved popular.

“All in all, we felt it was an excellent day attended by several thousands of people,” added Mr Dixon.

Money raised from the event goes towards a variety of causes and charities supported by the Lions.
