Notting Hill Carnival

The event is the second largest carnival in the world, just behind the carnival of Rio de Janeiro. It has been celebrated since 1964, held each August Bank Holiday. The very first Caribbean carnival then had only about 500 people who attended.
Today, it attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to London, and becomes more and more popular every year.
