Thousands of people have attended the biggest ever Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal this weekend.
It's the 7th year it's been running and organisers think more people than ever before have attended.
The Lakes International Comic Art Festival draws artists and fans from all over the world.
Organisers think around 12,000 people have come this year to see artists like those working on the Smurfs, as the cartoon celebrates its 60th anniversary.
Comic Art has a niche audience, bringing people to Kendal who might not otherwise come to the town.
Most need somewhewre to stay and all need to eat so it brings millions of pounds to the town's economy.
