Burnham-On-Sea Carnival 2013: Countdown to tomorrow's big event

Dozens of carnival carts have arrived in Burnham-On-Sea ahead of tomorrow's 66th annual Highbridge and Burnham-On-Sea Carnival, which looks set to attract bumper crowds.

The carts arrived in Burnham's Queen's Drive on Saturday night after arriving from the Bridgwater Carnival, which was the first event on the Guy Fawkes Carnival circuit.

Burnham Carnival Chairman Phil New, pictured, said that everything is now in place for a great event. "It promises to be a super evening - we have around 100 entries in total, half of which are carts. There are some really good entries this year and it should be a great night," he told

Families and carnival enthusiasts were out in force on Sunday, as pictured, seeing the dozens of carts in the daylight ahead of Monday's procession.

Monday's event will begin as usual in Love Lane, near the town's Tesco supermarket, and will then make its way along Love Lane, onto Manor Road, before travelling along Burnham High Street and finishing in Marine Drive.

This year's Carnival Queen, Emma Nicholson, and her princesses, Pheobe Stargatt and Amber Hayward, will lead the parade, which starts at 7.30pm.

Among the local entries is Burnham's Hillview Carnival Club with its colourful Luck Of The Irish cart, which is sure to attract big cheers from spectators on its home carnival circuit.
