The annual parade of Caribbean music and extravagant costumes starts in Potternewton Park in Harehills around 2pm. The Carnival King and Queen, accompanied by the Prince and Princess will lead the procession.

Sienna Leader, who is 10-years-old and from the city, had the chance to debut her amazing costume at a special event hosted at the Yorkshire playhouse on Friday night.

The amazing thing is Sienna just got out of hospital the Saturday before - she was recovering from a 2 day stint in the hospital she had a Quinsy (abscess) on her tonsils but she was so determined she wasn't going to miss it, as she had always wanted to be involved in the Carnival and wow has she made her mark.

I'm just bursting with pride she's just amazing.

– Sally Depledge, Sienna's mother

The carnival has been going for almost fifty years, and a major announcement is expected to be made during the event this afternoon.
