I went once, if I'm to be punished in the next life then the flying spaghetti monster would find no better punishment for me than an eternity spent at the Notting Hill Carnival
Sometimes it depends who’s posting. I think had a Mod or Editor posted this, it would have been hot. Sometime ridiculous joke deals go hot and then other decent deals go cold. People have been good enough to explain there cold votes which is good. There’s nothing worse than a deal going cold and no comments to suggest why.
Can’t work out how things get hot & others cold. Many posts about day out local festivals go hot but some like this & Pride are cold. Though a lot of the Carnivals mentioned have already been. Puts me of posting local goings on. We went to Bristol Carnival it was great day out. May go to London one this year. Nice to have a fun free day out.
Shame people have such a negative attitude towards carnival , been so many times over the years and love it . Started taking my children when they were little , my daughter still goes now she's in her 20's. It does take some getting used to , for example it always runs late, the stages are just as much a part of carnival as the procession, yes it is always ridiculously busy so prepare to leave before you are dead on your feet because all the closest tubes will be closed, food is scrumptious, loos diabolical, music loud enough to give you a second heartbeat ( that's a plus for me ) . Take drinks with you ,any shops that stay open will have increased their prices threefold. In general people are there to have a good time , but with the sheer number of people there will always be some trouble, but we have never seen any directly. I do have sympathy for anyone who lives on the route though and surrounding area . Not sure I'm selling it here, it's just like a giant party though.
