Celebrations and remembrance dominate this weekend’s events in Weston.

One of the town’s showpiece events will roll into Weston on tonight (Friday), before thoughts turn this Sunday to the men and women who have bravely fought to defend our country.

* The weekend will begin in colourful style when Weston Carnival is held.

Having visited Burnham on Monday night, the procession will move northwards and to Weston tonight.

More than 100 floats will set off at 7.15pm from Locking Road car park and snake through the town centre, past Alexandra Parade and the seafront to entertain the big crowds.

Vendors will be selling lots of toys and food throughout the evening.

* The Winter Gardens will play host to an holistic and craft fair tomorrow (Saturday).

The Weston venue will be open from 10am-4pm for A Winter Festival Of Love And Light.

Crystals, readers, healers and therapists will be at the event.

* A free music concert will be held in Worle tomorrow night.

Worle Chorale will be teaming up with Worle Community School for a free show.

It will be held at St Mark’s Church, in St Marks Road, and run from 7.30-8.30pm.

Choral songs from the Renaissance period will be performed and money collected for the church.

* Communities across the country will fall silent to mark Remembrance Sunday.

A service will be held at Weston’s Grove Park at 10.30am.

Lots of other events are planned around the district to mark 100 years of World War One’s conclusion
