Notting Hill Carnival Parade A Taster – rain or shine🕺💃🎉

Carnival Parade Children's Day

Carnival Parade a taster – a fab day

It may be raining in London for this year’s Notting Hill Carnival parade, but there have been times when it has been total sunshine! It was the year of the Tottenham riots so more than five thousand Police were on the streets as the Carnival began with a big SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE from the Kids. The West London celebration was to be the biggest public order test for the Met Police since the riots earlier in the month.  But it didn’t affect the carnival atmosphere and the party-goers were determined to have a great time!  The kids show kicked off the day’s Carnival parades with the crowd far out-numbering the police.  Even mixed in with the painted and costumed community
