Illuminated procession was one of the biggest in years

Bumper crowds lined the streets of Honiton on Saturday to cheer on one of the biggest carnival parades in recent years.

The weather was good and organisers said everything ran smoothly, thanks to all those involved.

But secretary Karen Wilson said that although counting was still going on, the street collection appeared to be slightly down on last year.

Now the committee is starting preparations for the Christmas carnival on Saturday, December 5, starting at 5.30pm.
