The town centre’s largest event of the year with a procession of floats lasting all evening. A major spectacle, with collections for charity. The town is full of people and there is a great atmosphere.
The Most Spectacular Illuminated Carnival in the World. Get here early as access to the town gets slow because of the number of people. Note that the town centre main roads are closed from Saturday afternoon until after the event, and the Bypass is closed from midnight of Friday until midday Sunday for parking of the floats.
