Clevedon Flower Show attracted hundreds of people to the seafront on Saturday and Sunday.

The massive marquee was filled with exhibits, ranging from produce to floral displays.

But there is far more to the event than just flowers.

Classic cars were parked on the lawns for people to look at, and on Sunday there was also a dog show.

Owners got to show off their beloved pets in the hope of impressing the judges.

The balmy temperatures meant the event was bathed in sunshine for both days, which is vital for attracting a healthy crowd and ensuring the event's long-term viability.

The weekend's event was a milestone one too, coming 150 years since the first one was held in 1869.
