Notting Hill Carnaval began

Today I went to Notting Hill Carnaval, which is Europe's biggest street party. The Notting Hill Carnival has been taking place in London, on the last weekend in August, since 1966.
The arrival of Trinidadians in Great Britain, remembering their great Carnivals back home, provided the spark which ignited Notting Hill Carnival. From a small procession through the streets with just a few people in costume and carrying steel drums in the 1960s, has evolved a huge multi-cultural arts festival, attended by up to two million people. It is a great tourist attraction that brings life to London during the month of August.

Today was childrens day, where participants were children as well. Tomorrow is real Carnaval tekes place with lot of hot babes. Eventhought totay was very crouded I can imagine how it will be tomorrow. I spotted couple places to see and shoot some pictures. I will need to get that place tomorrow as first thing. I saw some people on the roof and balcony , they probably live there. Imagine waking up and walking to the balcony to view Notting Hill carnaval. You can enjoy the show and have full comfort not living your home. How great is that...
