Thousands of visitors are expected in Cardiff Bay over the weekend to see the warships which arrived for the Nato Summit. Meet the Forces Day will take place on Sunday between 11am and 6pm. The public will get the chance to go onboard some of the six naval ships from the UK, France, Latvia, Lithuania, The Netherlands and Norway. There will also be tanks and replica RAF planes like the Red Arrow which arrived on Saturday.
Visitors and locals in Cardiff this weekend will get a taste of the seaside as the Cardiff Bay urban beach returns for a second year.
It follows the huge success of last summer's event when a quarter of a million people visited the attraction at Roald Dahl Plas.
The event will run until August 31st.
"Urban beaches are firmly established in major European cities such as Paris, Berlin and Madrid so it's great that residents and visitors to Cardiff have another good reason to cancel this year's holiday plans and soak up the sunshine in the heart of Cardiff Bay instead."
Today is the final day of this year's Cardiff Bay International Food and Drink Festival. Thousands of visitors have flocked to the event since it opened on Friday.
Local, national and international producers have set up stalls at the festival to showcase their products.

If they get the go-ahead, Wales could see a Blue Flag beach in the heart of our capital city, a 'floating theatre' and new areas for housing.
Artists' impressions showing how Cardiff Bay could look in future have been revealed.

A new 2km 'Blue Flag' beach in Cardiff Bay
A residential area called Baltimore Village in the Bay, with affordable housing
A Cardiff tram network - an idea widely discussed previously
Two wetland reserves on the Rivers Taff & Ely
A Bay water theatre - or 'floating stage'
The Imagine Cardiff group is made up of Cardiff residents and a group of professionals with various skills and expertise.

An 870-mile charity walk around Wales in aid of our soldiers has set off from the Senedd this afternoon.
The fundraiser has been organised by Walk on Wales - a charity set up by Falklands veterans Captain Jan Koops and LSgt Dai Graham.
The walk aims to raise £1 million for the charities Combat Stress and the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal.
Eleven relay teams will walk the entire length of the Wales Coastal Path carrying a specially commissioned silver baton.
The baton is inscribed with the names of the 50 Welsh Guardsmen who have died serving their country since the end of the Second World War.
A small minority of those taking part will walk the entire 870-mile stretch.
