HUNDREDS of Wearsiders celebrated the Easter weekend with special events.
Residents from the Sycamore Care Centre, near The Broadway, held an Easter bonnet parade.
During the day they showed off their bonnets, and a competition was held for the best creation.
There were also fun days happening around Sunderland with family events and fairs.
Bridie Snowdon, who works in the offshore oil industry, helped organise an Easter fun day at Farringdon Social Club.
It included face painting, bonnets and activities for the children.
Bridie said: “It’s the 33rd year it has happened at Easter.
“There was a chance it was going to stop so we decided to take it on. It was a really fun day for the kids.”
