HAPPY New Year - or Pohela Boishakh in this case.

Sheffield’s biggest, brightest Asian festival saw hundreds of visitors boogie Bangla style at a party in the park to celebrate the Bengali new year.

Large crowds gathered in High Hazels Park, Darnall, to celebrate a Baishaki Mela to welcome in the new year - and even the sun made a welcome appearance.

The Baishakhi Mela is a unique festival in which Bangladeshi people celebrate the new year.

There was plenty of live music and dancing on offer, not to mention some very colourful and exotic costumes.

There was also a chance to sample of the finest food High Hazels has ever seen.

Stallholders offered mouth-watering homemade curries, samosas, tasty tandoris and fresh fruit aplenty.

And there was no shortage of takers as party-goers got stuck in.
