The popular - and free - Cally Festival returns to Caledonian Road on Sunday.
Each year, for one day, organisers close the road and over 7,000 people come together for a huge party.
A Cally Festival 2016 statement said: “Expect music, performance, art, activities, creative workshops and much more.
“We also open the road to a street market of delicious food to eat and brilliant things to buy. The Cally Festival is a free event for the whole community.
“The community really pulls together to create decorations, art works, food and performances: really showing off what this area has to offer.”
