CARNIVAL FUN: Jennifer Sweet, Sarah Williams, Aiden Cooper, Daniella Scadding and Chloe-Amber Cash at Bridport Carnival
DESPITE the wind and drizzle thousands turned out for Bridport carnival.
Amid blustery and wet conditions on Saturday evening, 41 floats delighted the crowds who had lined the streets. There were floats dreaming of warmer climates with beach parties, holidays and a reggae paradise making up part of the carnival.
There were pirates, ukulele players, majorettes, a giant spider and even Mick Jagger turned up to give the crowds a taste of Glastonbury.
The procession was led by the coastguards’ marching band. Carnival Princess Chloe-Amber Cash, her attendants Daniella Scadding and Sarah Williams, Carnival Prince Aiden Cooper and Junior Princess Jennifer Sweet took pride of place as Carnival Royalty this year.
Chloe-Amber, said: “I have been really excited and looking forward to it since I was chosen.
“It’s been great and I’ve loved it.”
Yesterday evening hundreds of torches were lit for the annual torch procession from Bucky Doo Square to West Bay.
