Bridgewater Carnival

Post by menzies3032 » Nov 5th, '16, 09:25

Hi All

Planning to take my daughter up to the Bridgewater carnival can anybody recommend the best place to park and a good place to watch it from?

Thanks

Could try Riders car park and walk down to the A 39 or Sainsburys, Asda, Aldi down to the A 38


Be aware though that some /most supermarkts have time limits these days.
Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

Stay at home and stream it live....... http://www.bridgwatercarnival.org.uk/streaming/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

For the full effect,park your car miles away from home, walk home, open all the windows in your house,stand up all night with your feet in cold water, throw loose change into a bucket placed on the far side of your living room, pump diesel fumes from a car in through one of the windows,and get the neighbours around to stand in front of you. Ask them to bring you round a burger and some candyfloss and charge you twenty quid for it. At the end, walk back and retrieve your car and come home again. Job should be a good and mostly from the comfort of your own home! :-bd

Decided to give it a miss in the end didn't realise quite how long it is and how busy it will be 70000 people and 3 hours of watching is just a bit to much. Decided in the end the stay home and stream it was the best idea
