THEY were dancing in the streets of Sunderland as a annual carnival got under way.
Town End Farm residents came out in droves for their parade and community celebration.
The event set off from Town End Academy in Borodoin Avenue to the sounds of the BangShee drum band.
A number of information stands, including a crime prevention stall, were set up in the school grounds and housing group Gentoo organised activities for children.
The event is organised each summer by Town End Farm Residents’ Association.
