Pilton New Year Parade 2001

Back in the day, Pilton Festival organised New Year’s Eve Parades in Pilton Street. For a few years these popular events were organised by members of the Festival Committee. The use of silver in the costumes was particularly impressive. This excellent community event continued apparently until it became necessary to apply to Devon County Council for a street closure notice and take out public liability insurance.
These two photographs, photographer unknown, were recorded as being taken on 3rd January 2001 but since that was a Wednesday, it seems unlikely to be correct. Anyone who can shed light on that date and the other years when there were parades. Thanks to Bryn Rees for passing these to The Pilton Story.
