Carnival capers come to city
THE streets of Salisbury were pumping to the beat last night as the annual carnival procession made its way through the city.
Now in its fourth year, the event attracted large floats from well-established carnival clubs along with many local entries.
Clowns, Halloween monsters, Cherokee Indians and soldiers from the Russian War of 1812 all appeared on brightly lit floats, cheered on by thousands of people lining the route.
There were also entries from the Sea Cadets, Salisbury Malayalee Association, Winterbourne Brownies, Streetz Cheerleaders along with many more groups and businesses that joined the carnival capers.
Music filled the air with the sounds of a pipe band, Indian drummers and high-tech sound systems that gave the event a cheerful atmosphere.
Before the procession children enjoyed the funfair and there were musical performances in the newly refurbished Guildhall Square.
Several steam engines and walking entries also joined the parade which was led by the Mayor of Salisbury, Penny Brown.
Enspired Carnival Club Salisbury had a Chinese feel to their entry with a dragon and traditional dress, and Bemerton Centre Youth Club’s Thriller entry also proved popular.
All the money collected will go the Stars Appeal’s CT Scanner Appeal and several doctors and surgeons boarded the hospital’s float to collect cash for the campaign.
