Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside... in Sheffield
The sunshine certainly helped the return of Sheffield By the Seaside get off to the perfect start with temperatures tipping 30C on the opening two day.
The Peace Gardens has once again been transformed into a beach - complete with all the usual fun you would expect to find at the cost.
And scorching temperatures of more than 30C certainly helped it get off to a great start as families enjoyed some fun in the sun.
Among the attractions are fairground rides, hook-a-duck and pop-up sand pit.
Parents can kick back and relax in the huge deck chairs before challenging their children to a game of mini golf.
Fun-seekers can also take advantage of the fountains to cool off in as the heatwave shows no signs of easing up.
Entry to the beach, open from 10am to 6pm daily, is free and there will be children’s entertainers every week day from 11am until 3pm and noon until 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
