Hundreds of Sikhs are to gather on Teesside on Sunday for a bright and colourful celebration - The North East Nagar Kirtan.
The annual religious festival sees involves Sikhs taking Sikhism to the streets of Middlesbrough for what promises to be a lively procession.
The event will start at 10.30am at the Sikh Temple on Lorne Street , before moving on to Union Street, via Borough Road and into Middlesbrough Centre Square near Mima.
A spokesman says that the Nagar Kirtan is an open invitation to all, as Sikhism does not differentiate between cast, colour, creed or gender. So everyone is welcome to take part and there will be food for all.
