Derby Carnival Queen 2016

It was the annual Derby Caribbean Carnival Procession this past weekend. The carnival was only held on the Saturday due to cuts to the council local community funding. Normally you would get a big family day in the park with loads of music and food and activities for the kids. Hopefully next year new funding can be sourced as it is an event for everyone to enjoy. It was a still a nice family day out. The kids enjoyed themselves and the bikers were definitely a welcome surprise to view athough very noisy.

The procession starts off with what has become a photo opportunity to which you can take pics with the Queen whilst the different bands are doing their finishing touches. The sound systems are blaring the caribbean rhythms whilst every is eager to watch and enjoy themselves.

Take a look at my video compilation below.
