Cardiff will be awash with carnival fancy dress later this month as the city participates in its annual Caribbean-themed carnival event.

A colourful parade will take to the streets on July 31st 2010 complete with costumes, dancers, music and body-painted people emulating dragons.

It is being run by the South Wales Intercultural Community Arts group and is sure to attract throngs of people, the Western Mail reports.

Visitors will be able to learn how to dance and even play the drums if they want to get involved.

However, instead of a traditional calypso theme, the organisers have announced that costumes should be modelled in the concept of 'Cosmic Celts', or what people think Celtic tribes will look like in the year 3000.

Perhaps a stretchy red Morphsuit could be the answer here. Or failing that, a Celtic Superhero costume could come in very handy - in case Wales is in need of comic book-style protection from alien invaders by then!
