CARNIVAL clubs from South Devon dazzled the crowds last night as they made their way to Seaton for the first carnival on the East Devon Circuit.
Carts from South Brent Carnival Club, Ipplepen Carnival Club, Bovey Tracey Carnival Club and Totnes Carnival Royalty enthralled the packed crowds who gave the visiting carts a warm welcome and came away with the top prizes.
Ipplepen CC secured first prize in the Under 30 foot class with their entry 'Joseph', Bovey Tracey CC took first place in the Royalty Carts Over 20 foot class with 'Egyptian Wonders' and South Brent CC secured first place in the Open class with 'Tiger Falls'. Totnes Carnival Royalty came second in the Royalty Carts Under 20 foot class with their entry 'Land of the Rising Sun'.
Next up for the carts will be Colyton carnival on Saturday, September 13, with trips to Axminster, Sidmouth, Newton Poppleford and Exmouth to complete the circuit.
