The streets of Bridport were filled with cheer and celebration as the popular carnival procession weaved its way through the town.

The procession started from West Allington and snaked along West Street down to the Town Hall before turning into South Street and making its way to the Morrisons car park.

This year featured the Bridport Round Table dressed up as blue aliens from the movie Avatar, a Beatles yellow submarine and much more with a variety of colourful costumes, acts and accompanying floats.
