The first illuminated carnival in the East Devon circuit will be transforming the streets of Seaton on Saturday 31 August.
In existence for over 50 years, the traditional street procession through the town centre will follow a week of events, shows and activities.
The grand procession, on the final day of Carnival Week, on 31 August, will start on the Esplanade at 8pm. The procession route will go through Harbour Rd, Underfleet, Fore Street and Marine Place finishing up on the Esplanade.
As well as the spectacular illuminated floats there will be costumed walking entries, many of whom will also be illuminated with lights attached to their costumes. The parade will also be host to troupes of majorettes, smaller floats, street bands and local clubs and organisations.
This year the parade will be led by Seaton’s very own Samba Band who will entertain the crowds on the Esplanade after the procession has gone through.
Programmes with all the events and times will be available in many shops in the town, just look out for cards in the windows of the shops selling them for 50p each.
