Families will fill the streets of Chapel Allerton at the Leeds suburb’s annual arts festival.
The popular event – now in its 16th year – will see thousands of people enjoy fun-filled activities ranging from magic shows to historic tours of the area.
Chapel Allerton Arts Festival organiser Alison McIntyre said: “This year is definitely going to be a good one.
“The best part of this festival is seeing all the volunteers making this festival a complete product of Chapel Allerton.
“Everyone is involved and anyone is welcome to come and volunteer.”
Starting as a small project in 1998, the festival has blossomed over the years and relies on sponsorship and donations.
A team of 40 local volunteers help organise the event, with a budget of around £25,000.
The festival, which kicked off on Monday, runs until Sunday, with events including costume making workshops, live music, picnics and circus acts.
Alison added: “It’s great that the festival brings the community of all ages together.
“There are lots of young families who tend to come during the day and the older community towards the end of the evening.
“We try hard to have different events to suit all age groups, for instance a walking event to talk about Chapel Allerton past and present and a performance of Hard Times by Charles Dickens.
“For children this year, there will be a giant wizard which the volunteers have helped make.”
Adam Wilkes, who is helping organise some of the festival events, said: “It is very much family orientated and it is great to be part of it.”
