Rain did not stop visitors from enjoying Bradford Food & Drink Festival in City Park today.

The square is lined with number of stalls selling hot food, artisan goods and sweet treats.

Locals could be seen dancing in the street to the musicians performing on one side of Centenary Square.

The three-day event, which runs from Friday to Sunday, is being staged on behalf of Bradford BID, the city's Business Improvement District.

Debbie and Mark Dean, who travelled all the way from Sheffield, fell in love with the centre.

Debbie, who has visited food festivals in Buxton and Wakefield, said: "It's really nice, it's lovely. We've just had some dumplings. This is the first time we've been to Bradford."

While Mark said City Park was the "perfect layout" for the event.

Jonny Noble, manager at Bradford Bid, said: "It's everything I wanted it to be. We've got a really strong mix of vendors.

"We want people to come down and support it. It has to be supported."
