Photographs of the 2005 Derby Carnival, Derby
This page features pictures from this annual event in Derby.
|This was the 19th Derby Carnival to take place and it featured over 20 groups of dancers and costumed bands. It is organised by the Derby West Indian Community Association.
The parade started at Pear Tree infant school on Pear Tree street and proceeded along Portland street, then onto St Thomas road, Pear Tree Road and up Normaton Road towards town and the Market Place.
This was the first time I have seen this carnival and I was very impressed by the whole thing, The colourful costumes were amazing and I loved the music. The streets along the route were filled with spectators.
Most of the photos on this page were taken near the start of the parade.
The 2012 Derby Carnival parade will take place on Saturday July 21st 2012, for full details including a detailed procession route map - Derby carnival 2012.
