As the Great Yorkshire Show swung into action after one year's absence - ITV News Tyne Tees was on the ground to capture everything it has to offer.
The sell-out show opened on Tuesday, July 13, in Harrogate where 26,000 people are expected to descend each day until Friday.
Organisers have been working closely with North Yorkshire County Council Public Health and Harrogate Borough Council to ensure the event can go ahead safely.
This means it is running at reduced capacity and extended opening times - from 8am to 6pm - to allow for social distancing and to avoid overcrowding.
The sun was shining, the rain held off and visitors said they were happy simply to be able to attend an event like this after so living through a pandemic.
The Yorkshire Shepherdess, Amanda Owen, reflected on the last 18 months and what the return of the Great Yorkshire Show means to her.
