The streets of West London were awash with colour as dancers made the most of the fine weather for the Children’s Day Parade.
The Notting Hill event, held over the August Bank Holiday is Europe’s largest street carnival and celebrates Caribbean culture and history.
One group of dancers wore Phoenix-like wings on their backs, while another group were decked out in all-red outfits and third group wore eye-catching flamboyant dresses.
Those who had come to watch and soak up the party atmosphere were soon covered in paint and flour as they took part in J’ouvert, the traditional opening to the two-day event.
It’s been projected that two million people will attend the two day event.
