FANCY dress outfits, dodgy walking, and lots of smiles came to Pewsey last weekend as the town enjoy another year of the annual four-legged event, part of Pewsey Carnival 2019.

More than 80 teams of three descended onto North Street on Saturday night, for the beginning of the event, which involves participants tying their legs together and making their way around the mile-long course.

Entrants ambled from one pub to another throughout Pewsey and picked up a glass of wine at each stop as they aimed to traverse the route which took them from North Street, to Market Place, River Street, Ball Road and then to the High Street.

The annual Four-Legged Event is not timed, so is not a competitive race.

Finishers were given a medal on completion of the route, by volunteers dressed up as members of the Royal Family.

Carol Parsons, chairwoman of Pewsey Carnival, described the event as 'brilliant'.

She said: "Everyone who went really enjoyed the event.

"There was lots of family involvement, which to me is what the carnival is all about.

"We had a great number of crowd members out to cheer on our participants.

"The atmosphere was great, and the spirit of the carnival shone through on Saturday night."

The four-legged event has been a main fixture in Pewsey carnival, which has run since 1898, for a number of years and is always greatly received by the general public.

Participants dressed in eye-catching outfits this year, including crayons, a Mariachi band, superheroes and even as chimneys.

Apart from the obvious obstacle of having their legs tied together, entrants also had to traverse a stream as part of the route, which was likely more difficult with the pub visits.

Pewsey Carnival is still not over with two the Wheelbarrow Event and the iconic main procession still to come.
