A Record Carnival?
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

November 14, 2016: QUEEN ELIZABETH, WITH PRESIDENT JEANHatherleigh Carnival did not disappoint on Saturday night, proving that this is one of Devon's most colourful events. Stuff happened from Friday evening onwards with, this year, music in the Square to keep things moving once the main attractions had passed. Very large crowds turned out on Saturday night. In balmy conditions - dry for once - 28+ floats and various walkers entertained and amused. A White House float telling the entire Trump election campaign story astonished by its length ... surely a record for this Carnival. Local Crepe Paper floats were world class as usual and many other entries were notable for their exceptional high standard too. Overall a "fantastic success." More pictures on the way here - keep visiting - many, many more soon on Carnival Web Site
