Picture It: Peek-a-Boo

Mayor of London Boris Johnson pokes his head out between the feather headdresses of Genesis Mas Band members ahead of the Notting Hill Carnival this weekend.

The Genesis Carnival Company, a costume design and performance company, was founded by a cofounder of the Notting Hill Carnival, so its members have been performing in the local festival for 30 years. This year the band's theme is "Myths and Treasure Beneath the Sea," so think mermaids, treasure, coral, and sea horses. See the extravagant dancers in all their sparkly glory as they get ready for the float- and party-filled celebration!
