Tens of thousands of people turned out to see the annual procession of floats through the town last year despite flooding in the area. 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.
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.
