Festival of Nature continues despite the rain
Bristol's Festival of Nature has taken over the Harbourside this weekend - with organisers still positive about visitor numbers despite the wet weather yesterday.
Big Green Week organisers are hoping for a fantastic finale to the nine-day festival, which has drawn visitors from across the country, with many events selling out.
More than 150 organisations are involved in the free Festival of Nature, which was voted tourism event of last year at the Bristol Tourism and Hospitality Industry.
Visitors have been entertained by numerous attractions, including music, talks, interactive "wild scene investigations", an edible garden, advice for budding gardeners, birds of prey and other wildlife, debates and a children's costumed carnival parade.
