FLOATS of all shapes and sizes wowed the crowds on Saturday night as the Pewsey carnival procession rolled into town.

From the Music Man to the Harry Potter theme tune, floats pumped out their catchy tunes as hundreds of people joined the artistic masterpieces through the village centre.

Carnival Queen Hannah Parsons was joined by the rest of the royal family throughout the evening of festivities which began in Carnival Field and snaked down Milton Road and around the High Street before heading to Wilcott Road and Rawling Road, ending at The Crescent.

Individual fancy dress costumes included a Doctor Who themed Tardis phone box and a group of Disney characters danced to music played by the range of floats which also included a tribute to The Beatles.

A special float celebrating 119 years of the carnival was enjoyed by locals as they parked up in Carnival Field and walked into the village centre.

Carnival chairman Nick Wood thanked all the volunteers who helped on Saturday night.

Congratulating the creativity of the float designers and performers, he said: “Well done and thank you, a great show was put on and it was truly appreciated.

“We did pretty well on all counts and we did well on marshals this year. As chairman for the second year, I have had people congratulating the team for a great carnival which is quite pleasing because people often talk about the negative not the positive.

“There were some really fantastic floats.”

Included in the procession was a float constructed by workers at agricultural engineers TH White in Marlborough of a miniature sized combine harvester.
