This week we are celebrating carnival in our islands. The most popular carnivals in Gran Canaria are celebrated in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and in San Bartolomé de Tirajana.

But have you ever heard of Notting Hill Carnival? Notting Hill is an area of London famous for its carnival, but it really became known to the world thanks to the film Notting Hill. The most curious thing of this carnival is when it is celebrated, the last weekend of August. Those days, Notting Hill streets are full of colour, music, food and people.

On the above links you can read about this carnival and this famous area of London. If you want to know how this celebration started, just visit this link from the site Notting Hill Carnival.

Finally, I would like to share with you this video taken from the BBC website, where you can observe the pecularities of this popular party celebrated in the west of London.
