Every autumn, Somerset is illuminated by the floats and parades of the spectacular annual Bridgwater Carnival. One of the largest illuminated carnival parades in Europe, local organisations create richly decorated floats for judging. The extensive parade draws visitors from near and far and lasts approximately two hours. Bridgwater Carnival is the oldest event of its kind in the United Kingdom. Records show the carnival can be traced back to 1847 with the first ‘official’ carnival taking place in 1881.
