The countdown is underway to the Highbridge and Burnham-On-Sea Carnival which is set to take place on Monday (November 4th).

The Carnival is set to be a spectacular event, drawing big crowds of up to 30,000 spectators along the streets of Burnham-On-Sea.

Organisers say over 70 entries will be taking part, including scores of colourful carnival carts.

Last year’s carnival had a bumper year for fundraising, raising a total of £12,769 – which helps support the event itself, plus local groups and organisations. Organisers are encouraging visitors to again dig deep.
