Yes, it’s that time of the year again, the August Bank Holiday weekend, and it’s London’s biggest and loudest street party. Day I being Children’s Day was new to me as I usually attend the Adult’s Day on the Monday but no matter, as what lacked in the larger floats and costumes, was made up by the sheer exuberance of the street performers, their sound systems, the jolly crowd and the largely younger performers. Heaps of melted chocolate, coloured water and bright fluorescent powder was thrown amongst the crowd and performers alike, so that was fun. Of course, there was the essential drink and (very) loud music to pulsate you along the streets of West London.
