Honiton’s carnival royals were crowned last week at a ceremony held at the Mackarness Hall.
Sisters Tia Waldron-Key, eight, and Amber-Jayne Key, five, are this year’s carnival royals.
The girls live in Upottery and attend the village’s primary school.
Amber said she loves waving at people and being in the processions, while Tia said she is ‘thrilled’ to be representing Honiton.
She loves waving as well, and seeing people smile at her and them waving back.
The girls, who have been in a carnival club for the last four years, love the glitter and sparkles, and the lights and music of the carnival.
Helen Turner, carnival committee member, said: “It would be great if you could come out and support the girls on their float.
“They are brilliant girls and they are so excited to take part in this year’s procession.
“Please dig deep and support this year’s carnival. If we don’t get the support from the public, there’s a risk we might not continue to run in a few years’ time, so every penny counts.”
