And if you missed Skinny Fabulous charging up Nottinghill then you were sure to find him at one of the many events during the recent carnival weekend in Miami.
Miami Carnival kicked off on Wednesday, October 4th with a press conference which featured appearances by soca queen Alison Hinds, Oungku from Antiguan Burning Flames and the Vincentian three time soca monarch winner.
