Among the marquees attracting increased attention at the Great Yorkshire Show is the craft competition tent run by the Yorkshire Country Women's Association. This year's theme of babies saw entries including quilts, children's clothes and decorated doll as county chair Alana Barney explains:
The winner of this year's Grand National has taken pride of place at this year's Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate. Auroras Encore took part in a celebration parade this afternoon, accompanied by trainer Sue Smith who says it is great seeing all the attention he has been getting.
The director of the Great Yorkshire Show has spoken of his relief at this year's event passing off so smoothly. Bill Cowling's team spent £500,000 installing a new drainage system at the Harrogate showground to stop a repeat of last year's rain cancellation.
He says this year the event has been a great success.
Organisers of this year's Great Yorkshire Show have said the event has been a huge success.
Tens of thousands of people have visited the showground in Harrogate over the past three days.
One of today's highlights was a parade by this year's winner of the Grand National, Aurora's Encore, trained here in our region.

Grand National winner Auroras Encore arrived at the Great Yorkshire Show in Harrogate earlier. He will now perform in a parade - on the show's final day.
Organisers of the Great Yorkshire Show are investigating claims that cattle have been tampered with in order to enhance their appearance.
Bosses warned ahead of the event that tactics such as gluing extra hair onto animals and pumping up udders with liquid or gas would not be tolerated.
Former chief cattle steward and show director Bill Cowling said the practice was "despicable and heinous" and warned a screening system would be in operation.
He confirmed investigations were underway into two suspected cases after checks by the show's vets when animals were brought out of the ring.
Results will not be available before the end of the show and could take between two to three weeks.
The cattle classes are a hugely popular part of the show with major breeders coming from all over the country to compete - attracting around 1,000 cattle entries.
Children who set up a farm at their school in North Yorkshire have showcased their animals at the Great Yorkshire show.
Mowbray School in Bedale looks after children with learning difficulties and the farm is a form of therapy that is aimed at teaching pupils about responsibility.
On the second day of one of the country's biggest agricultural shows, the children had the opportunity to show off their hard work.
