The bright lights of decorated floats will soon be illuminating the town as this year’s carnival season gets underway.

Exmouth will once again welcome the bedecked floats and colourful walking entries of the East Devon Carnival Circuit, which is set to make a return in October.

To whet your appetite we have had a rummage through the archives and found these superb pictures from the 1998 procession.

Did you take part in this spectacular carnival? Perhaps you are pictured in our spread? We would love to see your old photos from carnivals gone by. You can send us them through iwitness24 (our photo-sharing website) at iwitness24.co.uk. Simply upload your old pictures to the East Devon nostalgia section and you could see them appearing in the Exmouth Journal, online and in print.
