THE NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL 2019

It has been the hottest Carnival ever, with temperatures above 30 degree.
More than just a street party, the Carnival was first held in 1959 in response to a series of racist attacks and rioting that spread in west London. The Carnival was put together to celebrate of the local community, people from the Caribbean coming to London in search of opportunities.
 
As always, there is a lot of fun, great energy and positive vibes, music and street food, beautiful costumes and dance from the London samba schools.

Once again, a great job from the Notting Hill Carnival organisers. https://www.facebook.com/NHCarnivalLDN/

THE NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL 2017

An emotional Notting Hill Carnival this year, marked by poignant tributes to those who lost their life in the Grenfell tragedy. Nevertheless, it was a time to put aside the sadness and celebrate the street party. Once again, I have witnessed two days of amazing costumes and colours, energy and madness from the carnival goers.

This year is celebrating the 50th year of the Notting Hill Carnival.
As always, the largest street party in Europe is about people energy, odd characters, the beautiful costumes and choreography from the UK leading samba schools.
