Caribbean Colour

Hi, on Sunday Nottingham hosted the annual Caribbean Carnival which I usually manage to miss due to bike club activities but the year I headed down with my camera and after a much needed cup of coffee I started snapping :-)

The costumes were amazing, the music loud and the little ones were adorable especially when you caught sight of a small group busy practising their dance routines.

The parade meanders around the city centre then makes its was to the Forest site where food stalls and a stage were set out. Each group in the parade also performed a dance at the end with awards for the best one.

The dance teams will also take part in other carnivals around the country.

Amazing costumes. Pity it was the same time as the Festival of Quilts or I would have gone.

Hope to see them at Leeds Carnival (the oldest street carnival in the country - 44 years this year) on August Bank Holiday!
Takes place in my local area
