Although many West Country towns boast their own Carnival, Bridgwater
prides itself on being the biggest and the best. One of the key
elements which sets it apart is the unique tradition of squibbing.
Squibbing is a spectacular pyrotechnic display which takes place
at the end of the Carnival parade, and consists of the firing of
over a hundred, hand-held, fireworks. Squibbers will be representatives
from all the major Carnival clubs as well as noted figures from
Bridgwater. [see VIDEO]
