This year's Colyton Carnival was visually more spectacular than ever. However, the problem of excessive sound volume marred the event. Why do the amplifiers have to be set so that the noise can be heard a mile away when the spectators are on average eight feet from the floats? Many people had fingers jammed in their ears, others were driven away as the noise was way above the pain threshold. If points were deducted for excessive noise level, this would curb irresponsible floats and enable spectators to watch in comfort. Adrian WestColyton
