This is the story of a day at Carnival.  So, if you can’t make the celebration take a look at this and enjoy!

A massive Notting Hill Carnival crowd packed the streets to celebrate the annual Caribbean festival.  Its an annual event in Notting Hill always jammed with people ready to party wearing their personally designed costumes.   Many of the outfits are stunning to look at while some are comic and others outrageous.

The three-day annual festival has visitors from around the UK, Europe and across the globe.  It has an excellent reputation for style and music and it has been said that its the best carnival worldwide.  In 2011 around 6,500 police joined the hundreds of thousands that crowded the streets.  The heavy presence of the police followed riots that swept the Capital earlier in August.  However they did not intrude in the fun of the carnival and in some cases joined in the frivolity!
