Countdown underway for tomorrow's 2014 Burnham-On-Sea Carnival

Dozens of carnival carts have arrived in Burnham-On-Sea ahead of tomorrow's 67th annual Highbridge and Burnham-On-Sea Carnival, which looks set to attract bumper crowds.

The carts arrived in Burnham last night after arriving from the Bridgwater Carnival, which was the first event on the annual Guy Fawkes Carnival circuit.

Burnham Carnival Chairman Phil New said that everything is now in place for a great event.

"It promises to be a super evening - we have around 90 entries in total, with 45 carts and 45 walking groups or individuals, and there are some really good entries again this year," he said.

The carts are lined up along the Frank Foley Parkway and Love Lane, between the Hawley Way and Ramsey Way junctions.

Monday's event will begin at 7.30pm as usual 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.

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