After a lovely warm Thursday, the weather is set for more sunny spells across the district as celebrations continue for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend.

While there are many, many events being organised across the region by our residents, the official celebrations - organised by Destination Harrogate, Harrogate Borough Council and Harrogate BID - are taking place on West Park Stray and in Valley Gardens.

Hundreds of people took their picnics to the parks on Thursday as Harrogate celebrated the Jubilee at 'Jubilee Square' and Valley Gardens

Hundreds of people enjoyed a picnic in the parks yesterday as they were entertained with big screen footage of the Trooping the Colour, various music entertainers and funfair rides in the gardens.

The highlight of day two will undoubtedly be the Jubilee Dog Show being held at the West Park Stray 'Jubilee Square' at 2pm, held in partnership with Your Harrogate Radio.

This is a first-come-first-served event and the numbers will be limited, so you are urged to get there early if you wish to show off your dog and their talents.

Events are planned throughout today and then through the weekend as the four day Jubilee party continues through to Sunday evening.

The 'Jubilee Square' stage will host the eagerly-awaited dog show on Friday at 2pm as day two of the celebrations offers great fun for all the family.
