Wellington Carnival may not be due to take place until 29 September but preparations are already underway with trial runs of floats at summer carnivals elsewhere.
The Wellington Carnival Queen float attended Bridport Carnival in Dorset on 18 August and took part in the traditional torchlight procession down to West Bay on 19 August.
Carnival Chair Dave Rylatt said, “We were delighted to support Bridport Carnival as they have supported Wellington for many years.
“We were also pleased that local businesses supporting Wellington Carnival – including Swallowfield, Wellington Nissan, The Skylark, and Unwin Photography – were clearly on display in Dorset. Other logos pictured in the photograph included Bloomin’ Lovely Flowers.”
Wellington Carnival is one of the town’s biggest events with proceeds being donated to local community groups, charities and organisations. Entries are now being made and details can be found on firstname.lastname@example.org
