Birds of prey soared through the sky and dogs wagged their tails as Downham Market Festival drew to a close on Sunday.

Crowds gathered for the annual Fun Day, with a dog show and a falconry display the big attractions alongside stalls, bouncy castles, fun games and other activities.

Fen Falconry put on a show and Harris Hawks, Lanner Falcons and American Kestrels were just some of the birds on display and flying in the arena.

Best in Show at the dog show was Baby Belle, an 11-month-old King Charles Spaniel.

Following the fun day a flag-lowering ceremony was held at the town hall.

This year was the 44th annual festival. Events have been going on all week at various venues in and around the town.

Earlier during the festival the town hall hosted photography and art exhibitions, music concerts, bingo, a quiz night,  a children’s party, a rock choir and the astronomy society.
