Somerset Carnival

I've been to a few great parades in my time but there's nothing to match a Somerset carnival. It beats Mardi Gras, it beats the Rosebowl parade - seriously this is great. So on the final night of the Somerset county circuit we drove off to the last carnival in Weston-Super-Mare. It's an evening event and is one of the largest so lasted about 2 hours. There were over 100 entrants - many of them huge great flatbed trailers being pulled by tractors and decorated in thousands and thousands of lightbulbs. They all are themed and have costumed dancers, decoration, some have mechanical moving parts - It's so difficult to describe but is truly an awesome spectacle! The weather wasn't kind sadly but it didn't seem to dampen many peoples spirits, certainly not ours - we enjoyed every minute!
