Notting Hill Carnival 2012

Dates: 26 August 2012 to 27 August 2012

Venue: Various venues

The streets of West London come alive every August Bank Holiday weekend as London celebrates Europe's biggest street festival - the Notting Hill Carnival.

With a Caribbean theme that sees West London packed with steel bands, Calypso music and tempting food stalls, the Notting Hill Carnival is a huge party. And everyone is invited!

Expect a sea of color as amazing floats and costumed performers wind their way through the streets of London. Whether you want to join in the fun or simply watch the crowds go by, don't miss the chance to be part of one of London's biggest and best annual events.

Sunday at The Notting Hill Carnival is Children's Day, with a shorter parade route. It's also the day that the costume prizes are awarded. Bank Holiday Monday sees the main parade. In the evening, the floats leave the streets in procession and people continue the festivities at the many Notting Hill Carnival after-parties.
