Notting Hill Carnival Sunday 26th August 2018
So we headed off to enjoy the Notting Hill Carnival today with the kids and all was fine before the rain.
Added to which, the fear of trouble resulted in there being more officials than revellers at noon, giving the whole thing an ominous feel.
For some the only course of action is to get as wet inside as they were out. But given that today is meant to a family day out…
Spare a conciliatory thought for the hundreds of stall-holders who have prepared for weeks or months to sell exotic foods. Only to end up with soggy-bottoms.
