Notting Hill Carnival crowds brave downpours
Up to 60 bands in colourful costumes have been taking part in the Grand Finale street parade. There were also 38 sound systems to entertain crowds.
More than a million people are believed to have attended the event across the two days.
Carnival-goer Rebecca Perkins said: “There’s something about moving your body to the rhythm of the beat and being surrounded by others doing the same and laughing and smiling and speaking with complete strangers. I love it.”
Hundreds of thousands of people attended Europe’s biggest street festival, the Notting Hill Carnival.
The two-day event in west London started with children’s day and featured Caribbean culture, food, music and dance.
Giant floats and dancers wearing colourful costumes made their way along the procession route from 10:00 BST.
About a million people are expected at the two-day event which ends on Monday.
Organisers say this year is part of the build-up to the event’s 50th anniversary.
About 6,000 police officers attended and the Met Police said they had arrested 95 people for offences including drugs, public disorder, assault, possession of offensive weapons and theft.
Ch Supt Robyn Williams said the force’s priority was to “facilitate a safe and vibrant carnival”.
