WATCH: Border Union Show returns to Kelso

One of the biggest events in the agricultural calendar has been taking place - the Border Union Show.

There were more than 200 trade stands at this year's event, with competitions for horses, ponies, cattle, sheep, donkeys, goats, poultry, and even rabbits.

This was the show's 204th year, and the final year for Ron Wilson, who has been organising it for the past 20 years.

The festival was started in 1937, so that Kelso could have a Common Riding similar to the other towns in the Borders.

Kelso is one of the last Common Ridings of the season. The remaining are:

  • 30th July to 5th August 2017
  • 1st - 6th August -Coldstream Civic Week
