Cavaliers Carnival Club


The Bridgwater Carnival evening finishes with the annual squibbing display, this is unique to Bridgwater. The squibs are let off the length of the Bridgwater High Street, when over 100 squibs are let off simultaneously in the air at arms reach, they are held up by Carnival Club members on a specially built cosh.

Originally the squibs were made specially for Bridgwater Carnival and were known as the Bridgwater Squib, these culminated with a large bang as each squib extinguishes.

Unfortunately with the demise of the firework it has become difficult to purchase squibs with a bang, so today's squib has no bang, but the display remains as spectacular as ever and is well worth witnessing.
