NEW YEARS EVE STREET CARNIVAL

Newcastle city centre came alive for New Years Eve with a street carnival which completely over took the city.

It was presented by NewcastleGateshead Winter Festival and was one of the biggest free events in the country.

Drawing on Norse mythologies and Viking folklore hundreds of local residents were involved in the parade as it made its way through the streets.

The colourful procession travelled from Monument, up Northumberland Street, to Newcastle Civic Centre. #NorthNewsAndPictures/2daymedia
