After a two year break due to covid, the event was back, processing from Palm Bay, along the seafront passing Turner Contemporary, the Old Town, and Dreamland, before ending at Westbrook.

Crowds of onlookers packed the route enjoying the show put on by dance groups, community and youth groups and clubs, businesses, individuals, carnival courts and more.


  1. Does anyone moan about the amount of slow moving vans causing pollution ?

    Or do we forget about that because it’s a carnival ?

  2. What a fantastic set of photo’s. Thank you ITN – on line for publishing. For the uninitiated ITN = Isle of Thanet News.

  3. Wonderful to see Maurice….. A loyal Margate character. Give him the freedom of Margate sea front!
