“Last year we had the biggest crowd ever, with 500 people attending. It’s a fun and social event and Hillworth Park is a lovely venue.” Gazette and Herald Newspaper
The Confetti Battle which takes place over the Carnival weekend is a popular local tradition that has been taking place for many years, and one in which everyone can take part.
The Devizes Carnival Parade is a spectacular event and promises to be even more spectacular this year marking its 100th anniversary. The parade starts on the green and goes through the town centre. A free community costume making workshop has been available to anyone wanting to build a float or take part in the Parade!
