January is well-known as a dull and rather depressing month so we’ve had a rummage through our photo archives to bring you these fun pictures of the Exmouth Carnival in 1985, just in case you were in need of a pick-me-up.

These carnival pictures show just how much fun the annual procession through Exmouth is, with many residents taking part and dressing up for the occasion.

Even though these images are in black and white, the happy faces and brilliant costumes more than make up for the lack of colour.

These pictures are all great, but The Red Barrow Display Team and wedding float entries in particular cannot help but raise a smile.

Can you remember taking part in this procession or any others on the East Devon circuit? We would love to see your shots from carnivals gone by. Email your pictures to Alex Walton or post them to the Enjoy Exmouth More Facebook group.
