The sun shone on Bradwell’s carnival procession, kick-starting nine fun-packed days of Wakes Week celebrations.
Organisers praised the turnout for the 2014 parade last Saturday, which featured a flurry of floats and foot characters all decorated to the theme ‘Explorers From This World and Beyond’.
Bradwell Parish Council chairman Paul Downing, also a member of the carnival’s organising committee, said the event attracted healthy numbers of fancy dress competition entrants and visiting carnival queens.
He said: “It was very well attended and everyone really enjoyed it in typical ‘Bradda’ style. We were anxious in the morning because it was forecast to be wet, but the sun made an appearance just before the start. It was a great day and thanks go to all who gave their time to make the carnival a success.”
