Nailsea Carnival raised a staggering £7,300 as fundraisers took to the town’s streets to parade in a variety of colourful costumes.
Oompa Loompas, clowns, cowboys and characters from the Wizard of Oz were just some of the impressive entries.
The best overall entry went to St Francis Primary School for its Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory entry – it also took the prize for the best junior group.
Tillie’s School of Performing Arts won the mixed age group with its Wizard Of Oz entry, while the WI won the over-18 category with 100 Years Of Votes For Women.
St Francis Preschool stole the show in the preschool class with its medieval costumes.
Seventeen groups entered the carnival this year and hundreds of people turned up to watch.
The event was organised by 1st Nailsea Scouts and members would like to thank everyone who helped at the spectacle.
More than £675 was raised during the parade, which will be donated to the Julian Trust. The rest will go towards club funds.
