Goosnargh in Lancashire, famous for its Goosnargh duck and Goosnargh chicken, held its annual show to celebrate food and its production this month.
The Goosnargh and Longridge Agricultural Show 2013 showed off its finest animals and broke records for having beautiful weather, plenty of entries, full crowds, and high standards.
The annual show was held in Longridge, not far from Goosnargh, and it was said to have pulled out all the stops. There was a huge turnout, with people coming from all over to witness such attractions as horses, dog shows and cattle and poultry shows, as well as live music for extra entertainment.
Due to the weather being particularly warm and sunny, it was a very busy show. Organizers said that both the bright weather and the value for money of the tickets made the show attractive to its attendees, not to mention the quality of each section and the entertainment that was offered.
Jean Hill, who is the wife of Barry, the chairman of the show, said that the weekend was a huge success because of the increase in entries enjoyed by several sections from last year, as well as over a thousand entries in the junior section showing off their talent.
Everything seemed to go along without a hitch according to President Philip Cowell, who said that everyone was very pleased at the way the show went and thanked the huge team of volunteers, who he said were the ones responsible for making it happen.
