Come rain or shine, there’s no stopping carnival. And rain it did.. all damn day! This is only served as a reminder of the power of carnival and what it represents. After all the months of preparation, there was no way the rain was going to dampen the spirit of carnival or limit the freedom on the road.
Continuing with the 50th Anniversary, Notting Hill Carnival welcomed hundreds of revellers and endless mas bands to the streets of London. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; This is a milestone for all who love soca, calypso, pan, zouk, reggae, dub and all the musical genres that can be found on the streets of Notting Hill should be proud of, but it doesn’t stop there. All the food vendors, drink sellers, whistle, horn and flag providers, mas makers, wire benders, pan tuners, djs, producers, artistes, photographers, videographers, journalists, designers, mas band owners, the list can go on and on, you should all take a much deserved bow. If it wasn’t for all of you the greatness that is Notting Hill Carnival would not be what it is today and what it will be in the future. WE SALUTE YOU!
