Carnival Pictures On-line
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

November 12, 2017:

Our picture shows the Rob and Dave Philharmonic Orchestra entertaining Carnival crowds on Friday evening. CLICK THE PIC, or JUMP HERE for images of the Carnival. A weekend of drizzly rain threatened the event but people hereabouts are hardy folk and crowds turned out as usual to witness Devon's best Carnival in action. Starting Friday night, when the kids of the town pulled the biggest set of tar barrels seen for years up the hill in preparation for Carnival Day, the annual Carnival unrolled much as usual. 5am saw the first flaming Tar Barrel run and many other events happened during the day. Spectacular floats were on view from 6pm in the market and the evening procession - featuring the unique crepe paper floats for which Hatherleigh is famous - was tightly organised. The final Tar barrel run went off as planned to end another wonderfully successful carnival. Two nights of music are now routine for the Carnival so there'll be even more to enjoy next year.
