BABIES, FOSSILS and crocodiles will be represented at the Herne Bay Festival today. Find out who is the bonniest at the Baby Show, then join the Great Shark's Tooth Hunt which is part of the Fossil Roadshow - bits of Ice Age mammoth and rhinoceros have been uncovered in this part of the Kentish coast.

There also is an exhibition of Punch and Judy puppets and ephemera, plenty of music and great theatre. Later on you can renew your energy by eating lobster royale at the Seawise restaurant, relax at a country and western evening and be amazed by the pyrotechnic display over the bay.

Saturday events include: Baby Show, 2pm, Christchurch Hall; Fossil Roadshow, 3pm, Clocktower Plaza; country and western evening, 7-11pm, King's Hall; pyrotechnics, 9.30pm, on the sea front. The World of Punch and Judy runs until 29 August at the Library Gallery. For further information, call 01227 742690
