Dreary weather and blustery conditions could not blow away the high spirits of a community carnival.

About 500 people took part in the Portsea Carnival procession on Saturday. The colourful event, in its third year, was staged by the Portsea Events Group (Peg) and came after the band of mums received a £10,000 lottery grant. All images by Chris Moorhouse.
