Portishead Carnival

head of the carnival processionPeople lined the streets, three and four deep, to watch Portishead’s carnival procession on June 16th, before flocking to the field to enjoy live entertainment, DJs, stalls, rides, food and drink.

The organisations that stepped forward to offer financial support to the carnival this year include:
