Organisers of the Bridgwater Carnival have been given a grant from the Arts Council of England. This year the carnival will take place on a Saturday for the first time in more than one hundred years. That diary date - November the third.
This video, courtesy of "Moving Art", shows some great colour from Highbridge and Burnham-on-Sea Carnival. The future of the event is threatened because not enough people have come forward to help in the background.
They are calling it "carnival in crisis". The Highbridge and Burnham-on-Sea Carnival Association says that their annual November carnival is in danger if they cannot get more volunteers to help out.
The event attracts around 100 floats and walking entries and raises thousands of pounds for charity.
Phil New, the event's co-ordinator, says that if people don't come forward to help, the event could be in danger. There's an emergency meeting tonight in Burnham at the Ritz social club where they are hoping to attract new volunteers.
An emergency meeting is being held tonight (Wednesday) to try to save the Highbridge and Burnham-on-Sea Carnival. The event is in danger of being cancelled this year due to a lack of volunteers to help with the organising.
