WEATHER FORECAST FOR BRIDGWATER CARNIVAL Saturday 01 November 2014   Leave a comment


Bridgwater Weather Forecast 01-11

 

This is the Weather Forecast for the night of Bridgwater Carnival – 1st November 2014 – supplied as usual from The Met Office http://www.metoffice.gov.uk We have had 5 dry Carnivals in a row and as we move 12 miles to the North of us at Bridgwater it is also forecast for a dry night. At Bridgwater they have a full days entertainment starting at 10.00am then the Carnival Procession starting at 7.00pm in the evening.

If your going enjoy it all, it is a spectacular day and the procession in the evening is sure to amaze everyone, there are about 130 entries and it takes 2 hours to pass any given point along the route. It is more taxing for us as it takes longer to process and upload the images here to our web site. We will be at Bridgwater at about 3.00pm in the afternoon and will still be uploading the images at 03.00 am or later.

So, stay safe and warm and enjoy what it has taken 12 months to build and display for everyone.

GEMINI CARNIVAL CLUB at HONITON 2014   Leave a comment


GEMINI CARNIVAL CLUB 2014

This week we decided to put Gemini Carnival Club from Ilminster altogether as we had quite a few. In all honesty in our opinion Gemini have put a lot of work into this theme, with lots of fine detail even to the music theme, remember there are four movies [I am told there is a 5th one in the making]

I can see the ideas and skills that went in to making this Carnival entry, BUT, I am not demeaning other clubs, they too have put a lot of skill and effort into their Carnival entry, I am struck with it as it`s a technical thing and I like that kind of thing. One of the things we do here at Heikoworld is Computers, we have 6 computers running specialized software programs [NO GAMES] we use all our computers to the maximum.

HONITON CARNIVAL 2014 [Devon]   1 comment


HONITON CARNIVAL 2014

 

What can we say, Honiton, you put on a Great display even in the town centre there were stalls of all descriptions, we came to the Carnival start and I said “This is going to be a brilliant Carnival” and, it was the crowds at Ottery Lane were some five deep, the children were laughing and enjoying every cart and other entries that came along. At the turn onto the main road their was a marshall keeping everyone away from the wall due to the wide turn needed for the very large entries, what a great job he did, safety is always on everyone`s mind at every Carnival, even at coin throwing at the collecting vehicles was well supervised, if a child missed the collecting trailer they never went out to pick them up, other adults follow on behind to pick up the stray coins.

So, even the weather was excellent, unlike last year at Honiton where we all got soaked. The whole of Honiton Carnival went without a hitch, always worth the 9 to 10 hours we spend in every town on Carnival Day.

Finally I see from the Carnival program that Honiton are holding a Christmas Carnival on Saturday 6th December, starting at 5.30pm at Ottery Moor Lane, look forward to that.

WEATHER FORECAST FOR HONITON-DEVON Saturday 25th October   Leave a comment


Honiton Weather Forecast

Above is the weather forecast map courtesy of the Met Office http://www.metoffice.gov.uk for our next Carnival at Honiton.  Hontiton is not far from us across the border into Devon but, we do have to go over the Blackdown Hills, over the hills the weather can have a life of it`s own normally but the Met Office are forecasting decent weather. Last year it was wind and rain all evening and even now it has time to change, but maybe we will get lucky.The Honiton Procession starts at 7.30pm.

REMAINING CARNIVAL DATES [Reminder]   Leave a comment


We have had the four South Somerset Carnivals. We started with Wellington moved to Ilminster and on to Chard, finally last Saturday the County Town of Taunton.

From this coming Saturday we will be at the only Devon Carnival we actually cover, that`s at the town of Honiton.

Below I have put a list of the North Somerset County Carnival Circuit beginning at the town of Bridgwater, known as “The Home Of Carnival”. All the Carnival Clubs from The South Somerset Federation will join the County Circuit making the Largest Carnivals in the World, each Carnival will take some two hours maybe longer to complete the various towns circuit. As you can see below the whole Carnival season ends with the Grand Final at Glastonbury.

For the benefit of all the many visitors to our web site from all over the world, the reason Carnival exists is “To Celebrate The Gunpowder Plot Of 1605″ Where Guy Fawkes and band of men tried to blow up the House Of Parliament and kill King James of England, the barrels of gunpowder and Guy Fawkes and his men were discovered and were all hanged.

TAUNTON CARNIVAL 2014   1 comment


Taunton Carnival 2014

Well we had no need to worry about the weather, it remained dry for the whole of the afternoon and evening. Taunton Carnival got off to a grand start with Harlequins Carnival Club, their swashbuckling pirates waving swords to everyone accompanied by lots of smoke. The Taunton organizers never let us down, each entry being slotted into place with precision. We were informed by Poppe Inn Carnival Club that they were sponsored by the Ye Olde Poppe Inn landlord to keep the going, well done to him, Poppe Inn have returned to Carnival this year after a few years of absence. As I write this we are hearing of a winner for the very first time in her home town-9 year old Rio Welsh came first, a very deserving winner. When we came to the web site we saw we had-had hundreds of viewers from Europe, Australia and the United States, well Carnivalites the word is getting out and the World wants to see you all.
