Carnaval del pueblo
Hugely popular Latin American Festival which begins with a parade from Elephant & Castle. Then on to Burgess Park Albany Rd Southwark, London United Kingdom. The largest Latin American festival event in Europe. Is a celebration of their roots, for Latin Americans communities in London, and a massive party for the rest of us. Once at the park, revellers can enjoy regionally-themed food, drink, live music and, of course, dance late into the night. There are a number of different stages offering everything from traditional music to the freshest reggaeton and Latin hip-hop
