What a fantastic day! It was my first Cuba Street Carnival parade with Wellington Batucada - and we were awarded Supreme Winner of the Meridian Illuminated Night Parade, as well as Best Music. Awesome!
Edited 06/03/09: These two photos are by Murray Short - thanks for the heads-up, Alex!
There are loads more pictures on Snapstar - check out the Meridian Illuminated Night Parade collections parts 1 and 2 - we're on pages 22, 23, 24 and 25 of part 1 and pages 26, 27, 28, 32, 33 and 34 of part 2.
Here's video... the first view of us is at about 38 seconds in - although you can hear us right from the start.
I had the BEST time ever. Everyone worked so hard on the float and the costumes and all the other organising stuff - and our fantastic directors and all the volunteers from Batucada and beyond just completely rock! Hooray!
