Lights, camera, action! It was the 26-28 of August 2017 on a sizzling hot summer day in London where bare chested men and women in bikini’s showed off their Caribbean flags and wined their waists at the Nottinghill Carnival which begun in 1966.
People from various nationalities visited London. Floats, whistles, face painting, rum punch, jerk chicken, reggae music, soca music, and heavy smoke filled the air. The performers danced and showed off their elaborate feather costumes to the crowd. Some peformers took pictures with the audience while other performers danced with the audience.
The police attended the carnival due to safety concerns as there have been violent attacks in recent years. Lots of drugs and weapons were seized however some people were still hurt and people were smoking so, I wouldn’t recommend bringing babies or children to this event even though some were present.
Portable toilets were scattered around the huge carnival area. Some residents and local restaurants charged £2.00 to use the toilet while others used the toilet publicly. The carnival honoured Grenfell tower victim’s as 80 people died a few months ago in an apartment fire. All in all the Nottinghill Carnival is worth experiencing at least once so please be sure to put it on your bucket list. Lol😀
