It's that time of year again! Thousands of people in Somerset are set to hit the streets of the county's towns and villages because carnival season is underway.

The unmissable ones:
Bridgwater marks the start of the Somerset County Guy Fawkes Carnivals - this is the biggest, most prestigious circuit!
Although Bridgwater is big and famous, the other carnivals on the Guy Fawkes circuit are just as proud of their history. Glastonbury, which is the final carnival, attracts crowds on the same scale as Bridgwater.
What's it all about?
Many consider the Somerset Carnivals the highlight of the year, and one of the most exciting displays of amateur entertainment anywhere in the world.
Every year, brilliantly lit and decorated 'carts' travel from town to town, putting on exciting displays for thousands of delighted spectators.
The processions is part of an ancient tradition, which stretches as far back as the 1600s when parts of Somerset commemorated the Gunpowder plot.
It takes months of planning, fund-raising, and building so clubs start working almost immediately after the season ends.
As well as working behind the scenes, many members double up as characters during the events.
