London, England (PRWEB UK) 18 August 2014
West London hosts the biggest street party in Europe – The Notting Hill Carnival! The event is the second largest carnival in the world, just behind the carnival of Rio de Janeiro. It has been celebrated since 1964, held each August Bank Holiday. The very first Caribbean carnival then had only about 500 people who attended. Today, it attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to London, and becomes more and more popular every year.
This year the carnival will take place on the 24th and 25th August. There will be about 50,000 performers and over 30 sounds systems to entertain the crowd. About 15,000 costumes will be on display this year. Every single costume has a unique design and is made by hand. More than 200 food stalls, loaded up to serve tons of chicken, corn on the cob, rice and peas to the hungry spectators. It is expected that more than 1 million people will attend the event over the weekend. The best news is that everyone is invited! Whether you would like to watch the parade go by or join the after parties!
