St. Paul's Carnival

July 09, 2013

Pumping reggae beats, a sea of brilliantly bright colour and more jerk chicken than you can shake a stick at, can only mean one thing - St Paul's carnival was back! After a year out, Bristol's St. Paul's community put on a show to remember.  And with the sun shining, the crowds flooded in to watch the procession and soak up the party atmopshere.

And with over 14 stages and sound systems, St. Paul's really does know how to throw a party.  My fav was the Red Bull stage and DJ Joker the highlight, keeping the crowds dancing and going crazy despite the sweltering heat. The partying continued into and throughout the night, with after party events held in bars and clubs all around the area.

As a carnival first-timer I hadn't really known what to expect, but I already can't wait for the next one.  I mean what's not to love about dancing all day in the sunshine, with your best mates, at a massive free party, right in your backyard?
