It’s one of the borough’s biggest annual events and the Great Harwood Show was bigger and better than ever this year.
The ever-popular agricultural show pulled in huge crowds of more than 10,000 people on bank holiday Monday and even the sunshine made an appearance.
Carol Armer, who helped organise the event, said: “It went really well after the rain, it was a beautiful day.
“We had record entries of cattle and sheep and 350 dogs. In terms of the number of people coming to the show, I think we had over 10,000.
“The few days before, the weather was horrendous but we had a fantastic turnout.
“We’ve got a lot more space, having moved from six acres to 40 acres, and we’re growing year by year.
“It’s difficult to choose what the highlight of the show was, if you asked from each section they would say it was theirs.
“We had Dexter cows for the first time this year and over 200 sheep, which is four times more than we’ve ever had – the agriculture has really taken off.”
As well as favourite farmyard animals, there was plenty for the kids to do with bouncy castles, a mini fairground and a craft tent which was introduced last year.
The trade stands at the exhibition were a huge success and featured everything from butchers knives to fudge making.
But Carol said there was one stand in particular that proved very popular with patrons.
She added: “It was the first time we had a beer tent and they gave brewery demonstrations.”
