Every November many towns in Somerset host Carnival.
If you have never seen this before then prepare to be amazed and stunned.
We feel it has to be the best free show in England. Up to 120 floats parade through the towns at night. Many of them bathed in light from thousands of bulbs. The smell and the noise of the festivities is unforgettable. It's all for charity and for the kudos of being judged best in show.
We have been to Wells and Glastonbury Carnivals in the past and have never been disappointed. The towns fill with thousands of people milling on the streets in a happy festive mood. Not to be missed. Brilliant for children although the procession can take up to 2 hours to complete. Wrap up warm.
The dates change slightly each year so check out the website www.somersetcarnivals.co.uk
