Honiton is looking forward to the annual illuminated carnival at the end of October
Honiton is gearing up for one of its biggest – and most colourful – events of the year.
The sights and sounds of its annual carnival procession lands in the town next month.
Several colourful floats will parade down High Street from 7.30pm on October 28.
Carnival royals Oriana Burford and Georgia Clifford-Davies were crowned in September.

The main event will then land in Honiton, splashing the town’s high street with music, colour and fun.
Helen Turner, who is on Honiton’s carnival committee, said: “People should attend the carnival – it is a brilliant night with lots of colour, music and happy faces.
“All carnival entries take a lot of time, money, work and passion to entertain the crowds. A lot of entries are local people supporting Honiton and we are fortunate to welcome floats from outside the town as well.
“Please show your support by putting your loose change into one of the collecting buckets to help next year’s procession go ahead.”
