Celebration of carnivals and festivals will culminate in parade of colourful creations.

Dazzle Week was all about carnivals and festivals at Honiton Primary School.

In particular, pupils learnt about the Hindu festival of Diwali.

Children made masks, clay lanterns and head dresses. They also studied the story of Rama and Sita.

The items they made will now be displayed to the whole town - during Honiton Christmas Carnival on Saturday (December 3).

The children will parade through the town wearing their special creations!
