Skeletons, swashbucklers and steampunks were among the stunning displays of colourfully illuminated carts at a town’s annual carnival on Monday.
Hundreds of spectators braved the wet weather and lined the streets for the 73rd Highbridge and Burnham-on-Sea Carnival, which saw more than 70 clubs take part in the parade.
The impressive procession of ingeniously designed carts were led through the streets by carnival queen Jessica Smith and her two carnival princesses, Belle-Seren Tetsell and Chloe Herowych.
Gremlins Carnival Club impressed the judges, taking home several awards including best entry in the procession, chairman's choice and the outstanding costumes award for their fire- breathing, pirate-themed cart, the Krakens Revenge.
Other notable entries in the parade included The Globe Carnival Club's Steam Punk revolution, Marketeers Carnival Club's ghostly gangsters, and Toppers day of the dead-themed Boneyard Express.
