Four-legged fun kicks of fancy dress festivities
The annual tradition of getting dressed up and have a laugh returned to Pewsey on Saturday, kicking off a week of Carnival action.
As always there were some topical entries, with emojis and a trio of Donald Trumpty Dumptys making an appearance, along with a good smattering cross-dressing.
Despite dismal weather conditions earlier in the day, fifty eight teams took part in the event: almost double the number last year.
But competitors had resigned themselves to getting wet, as the course takes the teams of three – each tied by the ankle – through the River Avon.
Pewsey Carnival culminates this Saturday (September 17) with the famous illuminated procession.
The procession starts from 7.30pm at the Carnival field on the Burbage road, and colourfully and noisily wends its way through the village for the following hour.
