Oxford's Cowley Road Carnival

Writing about web page http://www.cowleyroadcarnival.org/

Last weekend was wicked; Oxford's most culturally diversed area – Cowley Road, had its annual carnival. Cowley road was closed and featured a host of attractions including: 3 music stages, 4 sound systems, food from almost every resturant on Cowley (meaning food from all continents), dance, street performers, cooking demonstrations & children's activities
I live in the city centre and don't usually hang around Cowley except for a hair cut at the Afro barbers shop, so this was a unique experience seeing another side of Oxford.
The music was what I really enjoyed. It was quite diverse with acts from various genres like House, Raggea, Hip–Hop, Latino, Indie, Brit Rock and loads of others I can't remember now. There was alot of dance perfromance and even capoeira…it was awesome!!
I took loads of pictures and amateur video clips of the carnival that I have uploaded unto Flickr & youtube.
