Rolling down to Rio

It’s Barrow Carnival day, and the streets are, well, not quite thronged but pretty busy all the same. Unlike the last two years, it didn’t rain although after a glorious week when I was much too busy enjoying the sunshine to take many pictures it was overcast and a tad muggy. Still, it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of these local drag queens.

Ok, It ain’t Rio and it ain’t Notting Hill, but at least you can breathe.

  1. What a scene! Hahaha, fun!

  2. Glad to hear Barrow Carnival is still going. In the 1950s i used to watch it every year as it passed along Rawlinson Street. It seemed to go on for ages and was great fun. I think that in those days it raised money fro Infield Convalescent Home which stood, I think, where Infield Gardens now is (are?).

  3. Olá! Estou encantado com o teu espaço, são lindas fotos, porém seria bem melhor se colocasses um tradutor, pois ficaria mais fácil para entender e comentar.

    Abraços,

    Furtado.

  4. No good for running in I’d imagine!

  5. Very colorful scene.
