  • Description

    Clacton, Essex.

    Several shots of people preparing floats for a carnival at Butlin's Holiday Camp; beauty queens in swimsuits and bikinis are helped aboard a float; adults and children in fancy dress take their places on their floats; most are dressed as Mexicans and saloon girls.

    Various shots of the procession travelling through the holiday camp and into the town. The carnival queen and princesses go past on their float; another float is done up like a Viking boat, complete with Vikings on board.
