Nicole Isles was crowned Carnival Queen in Millennium Square on Friday
About 150,000 people from all over the world packed the streets of Leeds as the longest-running West Indian carnival in Europe reached its climax.
The 42nd Leeds event, founded in 1967, culminated in a procession on Monday at Potternewton Park in Chapeltown.
The holders of this year's Carnival King and Queen titles are father and daughter Tony and Nicole Isles.
"Leeds is fantastic, the people the atmosphere, it's better than Notting Hill," said Nicole.
Carnival chairman Arthur France said: "The carnival is great for Leeds and must be the biggest single event in the city's calendar."
Mr France, who is originally from St Kitts, organised the first West Indian carnival in Europe in Leeds in 1967 when he was a student at Leeds University.
