This year's Bridgwater Carnival helped raise more than 24 thousands pounds for charity.
After moving from a Friday to a Saturday for the first time, the weather held up for the night. And England's oldest lit procession had a few surprises in store...
Organisers have announced that the street collection held during this year's Bridgwater Carnival raised £24,565, an increase of nearly £3,500 on 2011.
The money will be shared between ten local charities.
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.

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.
