The Great Yorkshire Show

This weekend we went on a fun family outing to the Great Yorkshire Show. This 155-year-old event is just around the corner from my house and is absolutely massive. It is similar to a state fair, with agricultural exhibits; best of breed competitions; a giant food hall; and tons more.

Huge crowds at the show

We watched judges declare best-in-show of terriers; some kids play around with heavy farm equipment; and a sheep shearing demonstration.

We saw huge pigs; beautiful horses; bulls and cows; and a ton of varieties of sheep and rams.

The food hall was a lot of fun. There were tons of vendors selling everything from sweets to meats. and everyone offered samples. Yum! Cheesemongers competed for best-in-show. The blocks of cheese were literally bigger than Zoey!

We got so lucky with amazing weather. It was lovely getting out of the house and experiencing more British culture. What did you do this weekend?
