But there's still plenty to do in and around the city this weekend:
AROUND 30 stalls will be set up at Coventry Canal Basin for a summer art fair.
Crafts, photographs, jewellery, sculptures, boat rides and more feature at the event on Saturday and Sunday.
Organiser Emma O'Brien said: ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs going to be really exciting.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve been running around panicking going around borrowing gazebos just in case it rains.
‚ÄúThere‚Äôll be loads to do, a barbecue, boat rides and it‚Äôs free to look around.‚ÄĚ
The fair runs between 11am and 4pm everyday.
