Burnham's Hillview cart wins second at North Petherton Carnival
Hillview Carnival Club won second place at North Petherton Carnival
on Saturday night (November 6th), bouncing back from their disappointment
on the night before.
The club's theatrical-themed cart, called The Show, impressed
the judges with their enthusiasm.
came after Hillview suffered a puncture at the start of Friday's
Bridgwater Carnival, holding up the whole procession.
"All went much better at Saturday's North Petherton Carnival,"
Hillview Chairman Mark Bishop told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
The cart achieved second place in its category behind Marina
Sydenham in first place. Toppers were third.
The huge cart has cost £12,000 to build and is decorated
with over 10,000 lights, half of which are environmentally-friendly.
Hillview will be on show at the Burnham Carnival on Monday evening.
