The application deadline is looming if people want to get involved in Weston Carnival this year.
The procession will celebrate its 50th year of parades in town this November.
Thousands of spectators are set to visit Weston to watch the procession, and applications to take part close on September 1.
The event is part of the Somerset County Guy Fawkes Carnival Association Circuit, which visits other towns across the area, including those in Burnham, Bridgwater and Glastonbury.
Carnival organiser, Terry Gilbert, said: "This year marks a Weston Carnival milestone, which aims to be bigger and better than ever.
