Frome Carnival 2012: Club members dance on in true carnival spirit
Dance Til You’re Dead was the name of the float, and the carnival club involved danced until they almost dropped when their music died, winning them the Spirit of Carnival award at a Somerset town’s weekend parade.
Little Devils carnival club faced a tough procession when their electrically-provided sound disappeared, but they made up for it with an all-singing, all-dancing show which captured the hearts of the crowds and Frome’s town crier, who was judging the Spirit of Carnival award.
There was more to admire in the imagination, determination and enterprise of the hundreds involved in the colourful evening cavalcade which followed the junior afternoon parade.
Quackers Carnival Club, of Frome – formed just a year ago – overcame the theft of vital tools just two weeks ago to take the Best Wessex Entry award and to be runner-up for best float costume with their Garden of Evil entry.

Magnum, from Blandford, took the float championship and the tableau top prize with a dramatic interpretation of Robbery at the Old Casino.
Organisers are delighted by another successful event in the Wessex Grand Prix circuit, but are hoping next year to tempt entrants for the adult group masqueraders class and local masqueraders class, neither of which attracted entries this year.
There were plenty of other walking entries. Masqueraders take carnival closest to the public, and often provide some of the wittiest entries.
