The carnival returns on Friday 10th November. Arrive early and bring a chair, to ensure a good viewing position. Most processions are over two miles long and can take up to two hours to pass any given point on route. The 2023 procession starts at Locking Road car park, turns left at the roundabout and bears right into Alfred Street. At the end of Alfred Street the procession turns left on to the Boulevard, along Waterloo Street and South Parade turning left at the Cabot Bars on to the seafront (Royal Parade). It will continue along the promenade, passing the sea front Crazy Golf before it ends.
