The annual Festival of Lights took place on Saturday night in Northampton Town Centre.

It is organised by the Indian Hindu Welfare Association supported by Northampton Borough Council.

With food and information stalls on the Market Square all day, the highlight was a lantern procession along Abington Street in the evening.

Photographer Dave Ikin took pictures for The NeneQuirer.

Councillor Anna King, Cabinet member for community engagement and safety, said: “The town’s Diwali celebrations are always a popular occasion, with families flocking into the town to enjoy the entertainment and see the lantern procession.

“As always, Festive Road have done an amazing job creating a fantastic procession of puppets, lanterns, drummers and school children.”
