Dinosaur Lantern 2017

2017 saw the introduction of two new lanterns to our lantern parade. Paisley the cow was bought back after Devizes Carnival to once again grace the streets of Devizes. But we also saw the introduction of a couple of fantastic flamingo lanterns and an amazingly scary, life size velociraptor!!

Designed and made by a team led by Chris & Mick Davey, this monster of a lantern was made in less than a month. Massive thanks to both Mick, Chris and their team for all their hard work.

All of our large lanterns are available to hire from DOCA for other events – contact us to discuss any upcoming project
