Organisers of the Halifax Agricultural Show hope for a sunshine day as the eagerly-anticipated event draws closer.

The annual show, now in its 68th year, will hit Savile Park on Saturday and it’s a day not to be missed.

President of the show, Jean Whitwam has been involved with the event since she was 15 years old.

She said: “It’s always a good day and it’s always received well.

“People put a lot of work in and if the weather stays fine we’ll have a good day, but people tend to come out no matter what.”

The show promises to be a fun-filled day for all the family, with agricultural show sections as well as prizes for horticulture, handicrafts and produce.

A display of vintage cars will add a touch of glamour to the day and performances from the Les Amis d’Onno horse and dog performance group and Cactus Djake and the Western Circus will thrill all the family.

Also not to be missed is the Courier’s penalty shootout stall, where prizes are up for grabs for those who display fantastic football skills.
