Notting Hill Carnival

Pin It!

The Notting Hill Carnival is an annual event that's held West London during the Aug Bank Holidays in the UK since 1964. What started as a local festival amongst the West Indian Community in Notting Hill has now ballooned into the Europe's largest Street Festival attracting people from all over the world!

The carnival almost didn't happened this year due to the recent riots but loads of policemen were in place to keep order so all the revellers and performers still had a pretty good time!

It was one of vibrance, colour, loud music, loads of fancy moves and of course it was also filled with the smell of Caribbean food!

So check this Festival out if you ever get the chance and I'm sure you'll be showing off some moves of your own. :)
