Plenty of pictures from Wednesday’s colourful carnival parade.
COMBE Martin carnival parade dodged the showers last night (Wednesday) with revellers, colourful walkers, floats, two bands, a horse, Uncle Tom Cobbley and all stepping out to enjoy the fun.
Oompa-loompas, Smurfs, pirates, cow girls, Spanish ladies and countless creatively costumed creations all got into the carnival spirit as the procession made its way along the mile long main street.

* TONIGHT (Thursday) there is Carnival Prize Bingo at the Village Hall from 7.30pm, the tomorrow (Friday), there is a Children’s Pavement Art Competition at Borough Road by the seaside from 10.30-11am.
Also on Friday the popular Wheelbarrow Race – essentially a second carnival parade – sets off from the top of the village at 8pm.
Entrants are invited to put on their best fancy dress and assemble from 6.30-7pm. The fun concludes with a firework display at the beach at around 9.30pm.
Carnival Week winds down with everything from classic vehicles to supercars at a Static Motor Show on Saturday in the coach park by the Pack O’ Cards.
