Bridgwater Carnival Squibbing

I must try and sit the cold out for a change this year- just to see the squibbing at least once. After all my kids have seen it loads. For those that don’t know about one of the world’s hidden treasures…

Bridgwater Carnival is the largest free show on earth. Some bits are crap, some entertaining, some very samey and every now and again, you see something that is truly astounding – but that’s live and free for you!
It’s highly weather dependant but bizarrely, the weather calms and it’s usually a crisp November night for 100,000 people by the roadside.

The last video is a decent-ish squibbing clip
