The first day of the Dorset County Show has attracted large crowds.
Sixty thousand people are expected at the showground near Dorchester over the weekend. Judges say there's been a high standard of entry in the horticulture and livestock classes.
There are also food tents, trade stands and many other displays.
The show's secretary, Sam Mackenzie-Green, says it's the diversity that helps attract so many people:
"We're a combination things. It's the main ring attractions, we've got Bolddog Lings which people are really excited about seeing. The National Vegetabel Society's national championships again which appeals to a whole other group of people. And we have so much food and drink, local food and drink, I think there is something for everyone".
Preparations are underway for the start of the Dorset County Show.
The event, which traditionally celebrates the end of harvest, is one of the last shows on the south west agricultural calendar.
The ground near Dorchester will open to the public tomorrow and Sunday.
