The second weekend of Great Yarmouth's successful Christmas in the Parks event kicks off this Friday at the town's St Georges Park.

The park will once again be transformed into a winter wonderland with stallholders in festively decorated wooden chalets, offering plenty of opportunities for Christmas shopping and a delicious variety of food and drink to try.

Despite the wet and windy conditions last weekend, hundreds of people turned out for the unique markets, Christmas lights switch on, and festive fireworks, and organisers are expecting another busy weekend.

Harbour Radio will be at the park between 12pm - 6pm on Friday and 11am - 3pm Saturday and Sunday playing some festive medleys. Musical entertainment will also be provided by an assortment of acts including, Fay Bedford Stage School, Scott Ribbons, Great Yarmouth Brass, The Happy Day Gospel Choir, and The Jazz Trio over the weekend.

The Tunnel of Light and Santa's Post Office will also be on offer again, so grab your selfie sticks for a festive snap and post your letters to the man himself!

Cllr Carl Smith, leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said: "Despite the harsh weather conditions, the Christmas markets were an immense triumph last weekend.

"It was great to see so many residents and visitors showing up to support local and independent businesses in the run up to Christmas and we're hoping for another great turn out this weekend."

Great Yarmouth Christmas Market at St George's Park will be open Friday 3, 12pm to 7pm, Saturday 4, 10am to 5pm and Sunday 5 December, 10am to 4pm.

Free weekend parking continues in Brewery Plain, Fullers Hill, George Street, King Street, Market Place and Stonecutter's Quay car parks throughout the Christmas period, finishing on January 2.

Entertainment across the events is supported by the Welcome Back Fund.
