The biggest street carnival in Europe takes place every last weekend of August in London’s Notting Hill.
I used to live in that area so had no choice but to be a part of it. Great time to have a party on the first day, not so great to listen to the sound systems on the second day when you face a major hangover.
The carnival is a messy, crowded, loud event, I would not go again. My only memories are loud music and curry goat, crowds of people, no space to move around and no toilets.
