Thousands of pints consumed at Frühlingsfest Bury St Edmunds
All the fun of Oktoberfest arrived in Nowton Park on Saturday for the first Frühlingsfest Bury St Edmunds.
Organisers Deutschfest teamed up with a German brewery for a selection of beers, traditional street food and entertainment.
It was held at the walled garden, set in decor designed to transport drinkers to a Bavarian biergarten.
Thomas Janes, event planner, said the day was a resounding success, with nearly 4,000 pints consumed by 500 attendees.
"It went very well. So well, we nearly ran out of beer," he said.
"The music was popular and everyone was in great spirits. We plan to hold the Frühlingsfest annually."
Nowton Park will next be transformed into a Bavarian wundeland for Oktoberfest, on October 5.
