Spirit Wedding Cars at Weston-Super-Mare Carnival 2016

After the clocks change and darkness draws in earlier, there is one event that many people (including us at Spirit Wedding Cars) look forward to and that is the Weston Carnival. We all have fond childhood memories of watching the illuminated floats and wondering how all the dancers maintain the energy to keep dancing and admire the people frozen in their poses on the tableau floats.

The series of Guy Fawkes Carnivals are annual events dating back to the gunpowder plot of 1605, with the first carnivals taking place in Bridgwater.

The earliest known records show details of a carnival in Weston-super-Mare dating back to 1871. The parade would begin at Knightstone Island and weave its way through almost every street in the town before ending on the beach – where bonfires would be lit.

In World War Two carnivals in Weston – and across Somerset – were cancelled and did not begin again until 1969.

As recently as the 1970s animals were allowed to be part of the parade – so horses, huskies and oxen could all be seen playing their part in carnival.

Approximately 100,000 people brave the weather and come out to watch the carnival each year! Many coaches travel up and down bringing people from all across the UK.

There were around 130 entries in this year’s carnival, 50 of which were large floats and number 67 in this year’s procession was reserved for Spirit Wedding Cars in partnership with The Playhouse Theatre, Weston. We drove the VIP’s Belle and the Beast from the 2016 Pantomime Beauty and the Beast in our 2 door Beauford Wedding Car. In 2015 we also drove the VIP’s Cinderella and Prince Charming in the Weston Carnival procession in our 4door Beauford Wedding Car.

This year we were blessed with dry weather although a bit cold so could have the roof down absorbing the fantastic carnival atmosphere as the happy couple waved to the crowds and handed out flags.
