The Leeds Mela is now in its ninth year and regularly attracts around 100,000 visitors. It is the biggest Asian event in Leeds and one of the largest in the country.

Take a look at pictures from the Leeds Mela 2004

Around the edge of Soldiers Field were stalls selling everything from jewellery to books as well as local information stands. World Food Circus provided a huge range of foods from the east.

Youngsters were kept entertained by the huge inflatable Children's World and children of all ages enjoyed the rides in the fun fair.

Two stages provided the entertainment with music from banghara to Bollywood, fashion shows, DJs and more.

"I have been to Mela, and found it to be great day out. But I was surprised at the quality and quantity of the food stalls there. They were not as varied as they could be."
- Mukul Tyagi, Leeds

"I had a fantastic time at the Mela, the music in particular was great - but I agree about the food, I've been to the last 3 events and there certainly wasn't as much variety as in previous years. It was great to see all the different cultures just rubbing along and enjoying the sunny afternoon - we need more of this kind of thing especially with the world the way it is following 9/11 and Iraq."
- Richard Edwards
