CARNIVAL 2017 – FULL RESULTS: Congratulations to Gremlins – but everyone’s a winner in Carnival!
GREMLINS Carnival Club were crowned Bridgwater Carnival champions once again late on Saturday (November 4, 2017) night following another glittering procession through the town.
The all-conquering Gremlins (pictured above) wowed the crowds and the judges to take the Championship Cup and Hardy Spicer Cup for their cart entry entitled Run to the Hills.
Championship runners-up were Renegades CC with Maori and they picked up the Lions Cup.
Runners-up in the Feature and Tableau Cart Local were Marketeers CC with The Locker, while Ramblers were third with Hallowe’en in Deadman’s Hollow.
There were some other spectacular entries from outside of Bridgwater with Masqueraders CC looking fantastic with War Horse in the Feature Cart Open ahead of Harlequin CC and Beautiful Creatures, while Huckyduck CC look very strong in the Tableau Cart Open section with The Flying Dutchman.
