Unfortunately due to other commitments I didn't get to the Cuba Street Carnival this year ... thousands of others did though ... including some of my family members ... so no photos from me ... however I came across this one by Phillip Capper,
who was born and raised in Liverpool, England and is now living in Wellington. Phil's photo captures the way our city embraces events that enhance the life of Wellington ... here is one of our buses getting a paint job to match the carnival atmosphere .. thanks for a great image Phil.
