Leicester Carnival 2010
Leicester was this year celebrating its 25th Caribbean Carnival and did so in traditional vibrant Caribbean style.
The carnival was attended by around 80,000 people this year, with a fun fair, food stools and more; it really was a great family day out.
The carnival precession made its way through the city centre, up The London Road and finally to Victoria Park where thousands of participants were already waiting.
The precession then made its way through the park and to the main stage. Here, each individual group that made up the whole precession performed their carnival routines. They were all reviewed and one group would be announced as 2010 Leicester Carnival Precession Winner.
The Mixup, sponsored by London Apparel, was there to cover the days event as we have been with many events this summer.
Not only were we reporting on the event itself but The Mixup had collaborated with the event organisers to provide artists and performers whom we know, to perform on the main stage.
The Running of this went smoothly and included the following artists:
Apex, Pinky Bling & Jiggs
