Carnival season is almost over. Many would argue it culminates in Bridgwater Carnival on 2 November, probably the biggest illuminated carnival procession in the world.
I (Louisa) have, this year, been to Devizes (end of August), Pewsey (mid September) and last week, Trowbridge. I’m off to Bridgwater Carnival next week for the first time – I’ve looked at the website and it looks completely nuts! I remember a friend of mine at junior school went every year (30 years ago now) and it was supposed to be the best carnival procession even then.
Seeing the brilliant processions of these market towns, and the sheer enjoyment it brings to them has really fed my enthusiasm that it is a fantastic thing for a town to do!
Take a look at the Bridgwater Carnival website to see what I mean: www.bridgwatercarnival.org.uk
