Pewsey chose its carnival royal family at a contest and disco in Cooper's Field on Saturday evening, Eleanor Smith becoming queen.
Her attendants are Lauren Pound, a former carnival flower girl, and Louise Banting.
Earlier in the evening the junior royalty competition took place with Hannah Parsons - granddaughter of the legendary Clifford "Cossor" Goldsworthy - chosen to be carnival princess.
Finley Johnson was selected as prince and Lily Banting - Louise's sister - is to be flower girl.
For more than half a century Mr Goldsworthy, who died in 2006, was the driving force behind the Cossor's Sale, one of the main fundraising events for Pewsey Carnival.
