Devon Carnival season is upon us again with many towns closing their streets to allow a procession of decorated floats, many with music and dancers to parade alongside them.
Teignmouth Rowing club won Teignmouth Carnivals best float in the category and best float overall with their gig boat made up to look like the boat out of the children’s cartoon Moana.
The purpose of the carnivals is to raise money for local charities and there will be lots of buckets for children to pop pennies into as the procession travels past.
