Stunning illuminations will light up the night sky above Weston-super-Mare when the popular carnival returns to town.

More than 140 illuminated floats, marching bands, fancy dress walkers and entertainers will wind their way through the town on Friday 8th November 2019

Thousands of visitors are expected to descend on Weston and line the streets to see the annual procession.

The procession starts at Locking Road car park, turns left at the roundabout, past Tesco’s following Alexandra Parade and left on to Alfred Street.  At the end of Alfred Street the procession turns left on to the Boulevard, along Waterloo Street and South Parade turning left at the Cabot Bars on to the seafront (Royal Parade). Once it reaches the Weston Wheel it will turn left on to Carlton Street, travelling along Station Road where it ends.


Each and every collector will wear an Official (colour TBC) sash. Each collecting tin or bucket will carry an Official Number with a (colour TBC)  label across the tin or bucket. Official Collecting Floats will also appear in the procession. Please give your donations to Official Collectors ONLY.

Please give generously and help us exceed last year’s collection of £7,910

2019 programmes will be on sale for £1 each at various locations including Visit Weston at the Tropicana and McColls newsagents.
