Notting Hill Carnival 2022 – Scantily clad dancers in fabulous feathers hit the streets for festival’s second day | The Sun

GLAMOROUS Notting Hill dancers got crowds ruffled today as they hit the streets for the second day of the carnival.

The stunning performers wore colourful feathered headdresses as they exploded in a sea of colour.

Revellers in equally bright outfits began flooding to Notting Hill early this morning to get the festival underway.

It came as Europe's largest street carnival returned to the streets of West London yesterday for the first time in three years.

The festival was scrapped for the second year in a row last year due to the Covid pandemic.

Around one million people will flock to the carnival, which first started in London in 1965.

It was launched as a way for the capital's Afro-Caribbean communities to celebrate their cultures and traditions.

The event kicked off yesterday with members of the Emancipated Run Crew beginning the parade.

Co-founder of the club Jules Stephenson said: "It (the atmosphere) is electric – everyone is so excited about carnival being back."

The group poignantly dressed in green with "Remembering Grenfell" t-shirts on as they honoured the 72 people who died in the horrific blaze.

There was a 72-second silence before the parade began.

Party-goers also traditionally covered their bodies in coloured paints, mud, oil and bright powders for “J'Ouvert”.

Yesterday's festivities also saw two people injured when twerking dancers crashed through a bus stop roof.
