A very short video of one of the first floats to go past. I do not live on the official route of the Notting Hill Carnival, but as the floats have to get from A to B, they generally pass through here. The thing that is noticeable is the level of the music; much louder than in previous years. When this particular float went past the walls literally shook, so heaven knows what it’ll be like at street level (I will find out later this afternoon).
The weather seems to be behaving itself as well… After yesterday’s multiple cloudbursts, it is much improved. Not feeling particularly hot hot hot… but warm enough to say: oh no, don’t stop the Carnival!
