Newton Abbot Carnival 1992

The carnival procession through the town: July 1992

It was July in sunny south Devon. Except that it was not sunny; it was grey and overcast, but that did not stop the festivities. The carnival procession used to be a major annual event, as you might be able to judge from these photographs, showing crowds all the way from Courtenay Park and the Railway Station right up through the town to the multi-storey car park. It still takes place now but it does not seem to be on this scale any more.

Some of these photos are poor quality but hopefully they have some historic value, especially for the streetscapes and shops – so much has changed since 1992.
