Seaton carnival kicks-off week long festivities

SEATON’S Carnival week long of activities has kicked off with fun, songs and dancing.

Events started with a coffee morning in the Town Hall, followed by pavement artist performances on the Esplanade. Fire and Ice majorettes, Maypole dancers and musicians provided entertainment.

On Sunday, August 29, Songs of Praise was held as well as a classic car event, which ran from the Esplanade to Beach Road.

And during festivities, fourteen year-old Issy Somers, 14, was crowned carnival queen by former queen Lara Howard. Lily Hawkins and Jessica Hill are this year’s princesses.

Angela Broom, one of the organisers, said: “It’s going very well and the weather couldn’t be better for a change – apart from some rain on Sunday.

“Most of the events so far have been well attended and people are having a good time.”
