The team beind Burnham-On-Sea’s Hillview Carnival Club cart put the finishing touches to their entry ahead of Saturday’s Bridgwater Carnival.
Called ‘Yee Ha!’, this year’s Hillview entry is a cowboy-themed float with colourful western decorations that is sure to be a hit with spectators along the routes of the processions around Somerset during coming weeks.
The finished cart left from Highbridge on Saturday morning, where it has been built, to head to Bridgwater for the opneing carnival event of the season.
The entry will also be on show at the Burnham-On-Sea Carnival on Monday (November 6th).
“All the children are really looking forward to putting on another great display,” the club’s Lyn Burland told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
“They are especially looking foward to taking part in front of their home town procession on Monday.”
The club has had around a dozen builders and decorateers working around the clock this week to get the entry finished in time.
“It’s been a great team effort again this year – it’s all going to plan, but it’s turning out to be a hugely busy time putting the finishing touches to the cart before we head to Bridgwater on Saturday morning.”
The club has nineteen young members taking part on the cart, several of whom will be taking part for the first time and who are extra excited for the processions.
She added that the club thanks Burnham Waste, Mr and Mrs Rickard, The Oaktree, the Lighthouse Pub, Morley Tibbs and Jays Transport for their support.
