The festival was back after a 5 year absence, and it didn’t disappoint.
It was a bit of a dull and wet day, but that never dampens the spirits of everyone involved with putting on this fabulous and colourful spectacle. Heavy dub blasting out from the float trucks mixed with the vibes and sounds of the steel drums. The parade wound its way through the town and eventually ended up at Greenhead Park.
I have photographed this event a few times over the years. Always a brilliant day out. The effort that everyone puts in to make this a vibrant and uplifting festival is nothing short of marvellous.
Smiles all around, banging tunes, wild and wonderful costumes and a celebration of the Caribbean culture that is very much at home in Huddersfield. The festival in Greenhead Park was in full swing also. There were all kinds of food stalls, fairground rides, and of course, more banging music.
My family, friends and I had an awesome day out.
Here are a few photos I took on the day.
