Walton: Organisers hail spectacular carnival parade
9:00am Saturday 24th August 2013 in News
A STUNNING assortment of floats and entertainers paraded through the streets of Walton in the town’s annual carnival event.
The procession snaked its way through the town last week, starting at the Naze and working its way down along the seafront and through the High Street.
It included a spectacular array of 28 floats, as well as dancers and the royal carnival court.
Chairman of the organising committee Dennis Butler said: “It went very well and I think there was definitely a step up in quality from last year.
“We had an amazing turnout and the new entertainment acts were a big hit.
“It was so nice to see people come out to get involved and support our efforts. This event is so important for the town and it is always nice to see people lining the streets.”
