Handmade hearts are left across the city centre and people have chalked messages for the "22 angels".
The brother of one of the 22 victims of the Manchester Arena attack has visited the Manchester Art Gallery collection of public tributes on the second anniversary of the bombing.
Dan Hett, whose brother Martyn died, tweeted that the collection of tributes was "amazing to see".
About 10,000 objects - including soft toys, lanterns and a guitar - form part of the collection, which Manchester City Council has said will be archived and used for therapy to help families with the grieving process.
Here's or fully updated story so far, as tributes are made to the victims of the Manchester bombing on the second anniversary of the attack.
Twenty-two people were killed and hundreds injured in the 2017 suicide bombing at Manchester Arena.
Many people marked the anniversary on Twitter with #OneLoveManchester #WeStandTogether and #ManchesterRemembers all trending.
A Manchester City Council spokesman said this year's anniversary would be marked with a "more intimate" commemoration.
A low-key memorial service will take place at St Ann's Church later, the city council said.
The "personal and private event" for families and emergency services will take place from 14:00 BST.
Manchester Cathedral will also be open throughout the day for people to "spend some time in quiet reflection and prayer".
Joan Grande, the mother of pop star Ariane Grande, has tweeted a message to Manchester on what is the second anniversary of the terror attack in the city.
Twenty-two people were killed and hundreds injured in the suicide bombing at Manchester Arena in 2017.
Salman Abedi, 22, detonated a home-made device at the end of a concert by Ariana Grande as children and adults began leaving the venue.
In a tweet, Joan Grande said: "I love you, I send you a warm hug, today and forever."
Hand-crafted heart decorations have been left around Manchester as the city remembers the victims of the 2017 attack.
People have been encouraged to share photographs of the hearts using the hashtag #aheart4MCR.
Joyce Tewen, from Ardwick, said she was moved by the heartwarming scenes in St Ann’s Square as people stopped to pick-up a heart and remember the victims.
The 45-year-old, who has three children aged seven to 20, said it was a “beautiful” way to mark the sombre occasion.
I’ve taken a photo of all the hearts so I can show my children as it’s important that they understand what happened.
Alexander McBurney travelled into Manchester on a bus from Heywood to pay tribute to those affected by the terror attack.
The 48-year-old also made the trip to St Ann’s Square last year to remember those who lost their lives.
It’s just the right thing to do. I can’t think of a community or city that has come together as much as Manchester. It’s outstanding.
The mayors of Greater Manchester and the Liverpool city region have added their own tributes as people mark two years on from the Manchester arena attack.
Buildings across Liverpool will be lit up orange to mark the anniversary, Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said.
Orange was the favourite colour of Megan Hurley, from Merseyside, who was killed in the blast.
