Glastonbury Guy Fawkes CarnivalGlastonbury Category For the Family, Entertainment
The processions of illuminated floats are part of an ancient tradition, which stretches back as far as the 1600's when many parts of Somerset commemorated the Gunpowder plot. Grand firework displays and street entertainment adds to the sense of fiesta and fun.
The floats can be huge, over 50 feet long and covered in hundreds of light bulbs. Dwarfing the streets, these magnificent edifies drawing awe and wonder from the crowds are the results of months of work by the Carnival Clubs. These spectacular events can be hard to describe and you really do need to see them to believe them! [- Visit Somerset]
