THE second Poole Harbour Festival took place at Harbourside Park at the weekend.

The three-day event, which started on Friday, included a number of top tribute acts and local bands.

There was also more than 40 stalls offering foods from around the world, local produce and crafts.

Even the rainy weather on Saturday failed to dampen spirits, with hundreds attending the event.

Organiser Ben Dyas explained: "We wanted to do something the whole family can enjoy together, that doesn't finish too late but gives everyone a great day and a fun-packed night out."

Popular attractions included the Harry Rocks beer tent, which featured more than 30 ales and ciders - many produced by local craft brewers.

The live music started around lunchtime on each day, running on two stages.

There was also a range of children's entertainment, including crafts, circus skills and a kid's disco.

Topping the main stage music bill throughout the weekend were Coldplace, The Rolling Clones, The Fillers, Tania Alboni's Amy Winehouse Show and the Ed Sheeran Experience starring Jack Shepherd.
