October 15, 2009: Okehampton Carnival is this Saturday and the giant bike made for our Tob start is making an appearance in the evening procession. The same team and the same kids are taking part. From 7pm. Road closures apply. LOts of people think this bike was made from crepe paper - not true, it is all metal, though decorated with the crepe paper that puts Hatherleigh Carnival apart from all others! The next opportunity to see the bike is on November 14th ... here in Town during the best Carnival in Devon!
STOP PRESS: Another set of pictures has arrived - this time from Rod Stewart (really) of Exbourne. He managed to do what we normally do but failed to - that is to capture the atmosphere of the entire event. See what you think here
