Carnival - Colwyn Bay ?
A frisson of excitement is caused by a frightened horse, attached to a laundry van, rearing up during the carnival parade but there's no stopping the day's fun and frolics.
From the collection of:
A horse gets spooked during this carnival parade and rears up, the crowd retreating from the raised hooves. The animal, pulling a 'Colwyn Bay Laundry' van calms down and moves on, but no chances are being taken with the float bearing the carnival queen and attendant children: the two horses involved are being both ridden and led! This carnival procession, shot in Conway and Station Roads and at the pier, also features some motorised vehicles and a Noah's Ark.
