Old footage shows what the Herne Bay carnival looked like in the 1930s.
The historic event is set to feature one of its biggest parades in years tonight after organisers received more than 60 entries.
But today's event won't reach the heights of the 1938 carnival - which has been brought back to life in a black-and-white video.

The footage, which was shared on the Herne Bay Chatter Facebook group, shows throngs of people lining the High Street.
Horses feature in the film, as well as firefighters and cars.
Tonight's parade, which will start on the seafront at Lane End at 6pm, has received 10 more floats than last summer.

Organiser Andy Birkett – who has put the event together for more than 25 years now – says he is looking forward to the show.
“We are doing really well this year and have more than 60 entries already,” he said.
“It is looking pretty good and, although it’s not as big as when I first got involved, this year’s is strong and there are some really nice entries. Hopefully people will enjoy it.”
The parade will wind its way along the seafront and up the High Street, featuring a number of floats and community groups.
A fireworks display near the Neptune’s Arm will follow the carnival at 9pm.
