Newport kicked off the carnival season with style on the Isle of Wight by holding the first procession of the year.

Hundreds and thousands of people took to the streets to see the effort people put into making their floats and costumes to show them off to all the onlookers.

The next main carnival on the island is Sandown on the 29th July 2016.
