This year, London’s Notting Hill Carnival 2015 will be held on Sunday, August 30 ’til Monday, August 31.
The event will take place on the upcoming bank holiday weekend and organisers are expecting more than 1 million people to attend.
The official start of this year’s Notting Hill Carnival will be on Sunday with a “Family Day ” programme. The festivities will start as early as 6 o’clock in the morning. So it be a good idea if you set your alarm clocks if you don’t want to miss anything!
After the opening ceremony there will be a children’s parade where children in costumes will weave through Notting Hill’s Street. Needless to say there will be performances and music everywhere along with food and drink.
The family day on the first day of the festival might be the best if you want to visit the festival with small children. But you should be prepared, it can get very crowded!
