In pictures: Pewsey Carnival goes with a bang
Wiltshire’s oldest illuminated carnival procession returned to Pewsey last night (Saturday) with an increase in the number of floats, to the delight of the crowds.
Eighteen colourful floats – as well as walking entrants – took to the streets of the village, with themes ranging from politics, musicals, movies, literature and the Olympics all represented.
Thousands of spectators – blessed with a dry, mild night – lined the streets to wave and cheer them on.
Photographer Jonathan Helps was on hand to capture the action for Marlborough News Online.
