Colourful costumes at Leeds West Indian Carnival, August 1997

August 1997 view of some of the colourfully dressed participants at the Leeds West Indian carnival at Potternewton Park, talking to the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Linda Middleton. This colourful spectacle of costumes, music and dance of Caribbean origin is the oldest West Indian carnival in the country, having taken place at the August Bank Holiday every year since 1967, and it is second only to Notting Hill in size.
