Photographer's Note

Malgo asked if the dancers wflew in for the even of were local. The answer is local.

Zomercarnaval began back in 1984 when a bunch of students from the previous Dutch Colonies, Curaçao and Aruban wanted to carnival like they did when they were back home in the Caribbean Islands.

So the first Zomercarnaval was held back in August of 1984. It was created to allow the residents of Rotterdam to experience how carnival is celebrated in warmer carnivals. The West Indies were originally the main inspiration on how the carnival was celebrated.

Zomercarnaval popularity continued to increase year after year and in two decades Zomercarnaval grew from a small Caribbean party into a giant three-day carnival celebration, the highlight being the Street Parade.
