The Notting Hill Carnival

Billed as ‘The Largest Street Fair in Europe,’ the Notting Hill Carnival is an extravaganza of people...


...and music.

It’s loud. Very loud. See this stack of speakers?

That’s a small stack. And there were two more sets hooked up along with this one. And that’s just in one small block. It’s more common for there to be several competing sound systems in each block.
Some even bring along an elaborate set-up to go along with it.

This blue guy was part of that set-up.

There are also elaborate costumes.

In the end, I didn’t stay too long. It was just too loud.
