Locking Road car park
Locking Road car park
Locking Road car park appears as the large white area on the map and is normally busy with shoppers/holiday makers during the day, and coaches and trucks during the night. Once a year, however, it is used as the assembly area for the floats taking part in the Weston-super-Mare carnival procession. This is a view taken from the flyover and shows the floats preparing for the 2004 procession. The largest of these floats employ 1MW generators and can be 100 feet long. The 2005 procession will be held on Monday 14th November. See LinkExternal link for further pictures of Somerset and Wessex illuminated carnivals.
