carnival pad


Senior Member
Another puzzle from Zadie Smith (NW).
August carnival in London. Usually it is walking the streets with a million others. But this time they (the family of protagonists) “finally accept Frank’s (it is a family friend) annual invitation to a friend of a friend’s with ‘an amazing carnival pad’.”
Can anybody tell me what is a “carnival pad” and why it is so attractive?
Thanks in advance
