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.
