Visit Somerset in November and you could witness the largest illuminated carnival in Europe, at Bridgwater.
Lighting up the skies in Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, Wells, Shepton Mallet, North Petherton and Weston-super-Mare is the fantastic tradition of evening carnival - hundreds of 'carts' ablaze with colour and alive with music. At Bridgwater the unique 'squib' fireworks are lit simultaneously after the procession.
