Huge crowd turns out for dazzling Burnham-On-Sea Carnival

A huge crowd of over 20,000 people lined the streets of Burnham-On-Sea on Monday (November 8th) as dozens of illuminated carnival floats rolled through town.

Over 90 carts and entertainers wowed the spectators with a cavalcade of colour and excitement.

This year's Carnival Queen Anna Kevan and her princesses, Burnham girls Katrina Doyle and Agatha Parrott, led the procession, as pictured.

Best entry in the procession was judged to be Gremlin's Carnival Club's Runaway Train.

Some of the biggest cheers of the night were for Burnham's Hillview Juvenile Carnival Club, whose theatrical-themed float, The Show, won second place in the juvenile class behind Marina Sydenham's Africa, but won the Best Local Entry award.

Malcolm Borland, President of the Carnival Association told "We're delighted with how the event went."

Huge crowds braved wet weather to line the route of the carnival, which wended its way along Love Lane, Manor Road, Victoria Street, The High Street and ended in Marine Drive.
