On Sunday, 26th May 2019 I attended Luton’s Spring Carnival. The hats were amazing. Have a look at the set up below.
This theme was based on the Steam Ship Empire Windrush. It was to remind people that it was over seventy years ago that the Steam Ship, Empire Windrush came from the Caribbean with black people to help rebuild England after World War II (https://cgl-imaging.com/black-history-month-uk). The hats represent the many jobs that the Afro-Caribbean community had to do from 1950 to 1990.
The image above shows the children in planes from the 20th Century. It was a cloudy day but not cold for the Spring Bank Holiday weekend.
Below are just a selection of the various costumes and displays that were at the Luton Carnival.
As can be seen from above there is quite a lot of creative work that has gone into the outfits. The park is where I headed to for a brief moment to capture some images.
It is always a pleasure to capture the amazing costumes at the Luton Carnival and finally present them. I have so many events that I attend when I am not taking pictures for the business.
Below are the remaining pictures of Luton’s Carnival.
I will always get your good side if you pose for my camera 🙂
