HONITON CARNIVAL 2014 [Devon]   Leave a 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.

CHARD CARNIVAL 2014   2 comments


Chard Carnival 2014

With three out out four Carnivals of the South Somerset Federation, this week was the turn of Chard Town, Chard is known for the invention of Powered Flight but, tonight was given over to Futuristic Robots [Transformers] Pirates and all the Glitz and Glamour you could ask for, ranging from about two years old to 75 years old, what a mix of people and personalities, the tremendous amount of work that went into Cart builds and costumes, well done to everyone who took part.

If you have never seen any Carnival Parade in Somerset you really are missing out on something, we have covered Carnival both in Television and here on the web and it always amazes us at what turns out on these small town`s streets, the bigger clubs are nearly 100 foot long with lights and moving objects that are stunning, the comic section will have you in tears and childrens cart builds with a two year old sitting in a suitcase, all the Majorette Troups all putting on a show with precise routines, it seems that the crowds that lined the streets got more than they expected. We see it year in year out, and it has not finished yet, there are more to come.

Next week 18th October is the turn of the County Town of Somerset – Taunton, to host the Carnival.
