Picture gallery: Carnival is huge success
Hundreds of spectators lined the streets of Nailsea to watch the popular carnival
DALEKS, Biblical scarecrows and Mexicans were just some of the colourful characters parading through Nailsea at the town’s popular carnival.
More than 3,500 took part in the spectacle, which was organised by the 1st Nailsea Scout Group.
Martin Weaver, chairman of the Friends of First Nailsea fundraising group, said: “It went really well. We had more procession walkers than ever before. We only had two floats, but at least four groups said they would enter a float next year.
“Floats are what carnival is all about and I think a lot of people were disappointed by the lack of them this year. But I think it has encouraged people to enter one next time.”
