The sites, smells and sounds of the Filipino culture and food have filled a mid Norfolk village hall.
Hundreds of people have flocked to the Barrio Fiesta, a celebration of all things Filipino, at East Tuddenham Village Hall today.
Whilst music and dance performances have been taking place inside the hall, the car park has been transformed into a vibrant market place where visitors have been enjoying Filipino dishes and desserts.
Rene Lucero, one of the organisers, said event such as this were a way for the UK's 250,000 Filipinos to share their culture and make new connections.
He said: "This is all about a celebration of life and a way of saying thank you to our local communities."
Tess Ward, another organiser, said: "It has gone really well and although it's windy it's not been raining, and everyone has said they enjoyed it."
The festival runs until 6pm.
