Well done everyone who made Dawlish Carnival 2016 one to remember.
The best for years - long may it continue in the same vein!
Well done to all the organisers. You should be proud of yourselves.
Maybe not one of the biggest but the quality was excellent. Many thanks to Rampage Mas for coming down and showing us a bit of 'Notting Hill'. Hope we see you again.
Yes, I supported the Carnival last night AND all week and put lots of money in the collection boxes.
Why am I making this statement? Because I am an OUTSIDER and since your outburst, I never supported you at all.
Long live the NEW Dawlish Celebrates Carnival committee.
Recent Carnival weeks made me question what on earth had possessed me in years gone by to take time off work to enjoy the week. This year's Carnival reminded why. The organisers brought energy and enthusiasm and a lively programme of events to the town, and there was an all round good vibe. Shows what can be done with competent people in the driving seat. I hope it goes from strength to strength and the last few years are never allowed to happen again.
I too thought Mas Rampage were superb and it'd be great to see more of that calibre setting the bar for years to come.
Great week of Carnival the only way is up, But don't let the Farley's near or the only way is DOWN.
Good write up in both papers.
