My World: Luton Carnival 2018


New member
It was the second day of the Bank Holiday weekend and thunderstorms were threatened, but fortunately it stayed dry for the carnival in Luton! Like last year, the parade route was centred around Wardown Park, starting and ending in New Bedford Road.

I love the Luton Carnival pictures!

Thanks Gareth for taking us there. This is a wonderful expression of diversity and pride in identity. What a great mixing pot the U.K. is nowadays.

I was recently in Birmingham and impressed by the new buildings and modernization at the University and downtown. I was impressed by a Muslim girl in a black super-modest outfit, who served me in a superstore downtown with a perfect “Brummie” accent and the sweetest outgoing attitude. That is a great feeling!

Your pictures convey the energy and joy that comes from celebrating and treasuring ethnic differences and heritages! How could any place be more lively than this Luton Carnival!
