McCarthy and Stone and the Bournemouth Carnival, Dorset - 8th August 1986

It's another outing for McCarthy and Stone's "The Jolly Mac" carnival float, playing the part of Treasure Island. This time, it's down to Bournemouth - first assembling in a car park somewhere, before the procession heads out and finishes up on the seafront.
