I went to Cambridge Carnival last weekend (a celebration of African culture around the world.) It was right outside my work, so I thought I would just pop in and take care of a few things, which ended up taking over an hour, but after that I managed to get out and enjoy the festivities, and it was so much fun!
This was my favorite part of the vendor show. I especially love the Cricket at the bottom.
After I looked at the vendor show, I looked west and saw some bright colors, so I went to investigate. It turns out there was a whole parade of costumes celebrating different cultures – African, Caribbean, Bahamian and more!
People of all ages were parading and dancing. So much talent!
The costumes were bright and brilliant! Sorry for the bad picture quality – I couldn’t get a good spot in the crowd and was struggling with lighting. Barely 8 months away from Texas and I forget how to deal with the sun.
The costumes were so extravagant! Simply gorgeous! And the people dancing were of all shapes and sizes – I really loved watching the parade, though my hearing may never be the same (be prepared for loud music!)
And finally, a stiltwalker doing things I could never do! Very cool. I definitely wasn’t expecting this event to be as mind-blowingly awesome as it was and I’m so glad I made the time to go.
