Carnaval Tropical de Paris 2013

by soundlandscapes

PARIS IN JULY means that it must be summer – and summer means that it must be Carnival time.

01

Yesterday, the annual Carnaval Tropical de Paris took place around place de la Nation.  Some 4,000 dancers in colourful costumes, dozens of floats and a cornucopia of drummers paraded through place de la Nation and then meandered for some 4.5 km through the 11th arrondissement.  This is one of the highlights of the Parisian summer and there is little to compete with it for colour, sound and cultural diversity.

I was there yesterday to savour it all.

      Thanks Heather. These guys certainly know how to party! The near tropical weather also added to the atmosphere. The costumes were amazing and made me feel very underdressed!
