Organisers of the Lincolnshire Show say they're hoping this year will be bigger and better than ever, especially to support local farmers who've faced extremely challenging circumstances over the last few months.
The agricultural show, which takes place tomorrow and Thursday, is in its 129th year.
The Countess of Wessex is due to visit this year. There will also be a display from the Red Arrows, and a flypast of the Battle of Britain Memorial Dakota.
– Jayne Southall, director of the Lincolnshire Showground and the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society
The Lincolnshire Show is undoubtedly a county institution and we are immensely proud that 129 years on the show is bigger, better and more diverse than ever. "However we are still incredibly aware of our roots and the society's commitment to supporting agriculture. "The recent couple of years have been incredibly challenging for many of Lincolnshire's farmers therefore we are working hard to ensure that this year's show will be even more of a success than ever before for them."
The Red Arrows have been cleared for take off this year after proving that their new look display is safe.
The RAF's Chief of Staff has awarded the nine aircraft team, which is based at Scampton in Lincolnshire, it's public display authority. Sir Stephen Dalton says the Red Arrows are an iconic symbol of the UK that demonstrate excellence in precision, teamwork and dynamic flying.

A full inquest into the death of Red Arrows pilot Sean Cunningham looks set to go ahead in October. Flight Lieutenant Cunningham was killed after his ejection seat fired while his plane was on the tarmac at Lincolnshire's RAF Scampton in November 2011.
A pre-inquest hearing into his death was held at the Cathedral Centre in Lincoln when the Coroner, Stuart Fisher, set a provisional date of October 23rd for the full inquest.
A hearing is expected to take place later into the death of Red Arrows pilot Sean Cunningham. He died after being ejected from the cockpit of his plane while it was on the ground at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.
The parachute on the ejector seat did not deploy and the South African-born airman later died in hospital. The Crown Prosecution Service has previously said that no charges will be brought in relation to Mr Cunningham's death in November 2011.
Following the incident, the RAF grounded all non-essential flying of aircraft fitted with the Mk10 Martin Baker-built ejector seat "as a precaution", but flights later resumed in December 2011, with air chiefs saying they had "no remaining safety concerns".
The pre-inquest review into Flt Lt Cunningham's death is set to take place at the Lincoln Cathedral Centre.

It is envisaged regular air shows, a museum, exhibitions and and a hotel would draw in thousands of visitors from around world.
The Ministry of Defence could face criminal charges over the death of a Red Arrows pilot at RAF Scampton in Lincoln. Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham died when he was ejected from his Hawk T1 aircraft and the parachute failed to open.

The Team Leader of the Red Arrows has told Calendar she's pleased the future of the aerobatic display team is now secure, after comments made by the Prime Minister last week.
Following speculation over whether defence cuts may spell the end for the Reds, David Cameron has offered reassurance, saying as long as he is in Downing Street the team will continue to grace the skies of Britain.
Downing Street also described the Red Arrows as one of Britain's most iconic brands, saying Mister Cameron believes they reflect everything that's great about Britain.
Squadron Leader Ruth Shackleton said: "Of course nothing is secure in this climate of ours but of course we're very pleased indeed that he confirmed that is the case and we're secure, and of course with the building of the runway at RAF Scampton also we will be there for a good few years yet."
