Carnival colour in Frome

FROM little green men (and women) from Mars to salsa dancers and charity collectors in rainbow colours, this year’s Frome Carnival was once again a vibrant celebration of imagination. The carnival – beginning with the children’s procession in the afternoon followed by the main evening cavalcade – is unique in that it raises money for the town’s own carnival charity, supporting local organisations and individuals in need. And it was the first time that organisers abandoned the traditional carnival royalty in favour of “ambassadors”.
