Ripley Show is a great day out!
Held on the second Sunday in August; we were at Ripley Show today, Sunday 9th August 2015 from 9am till late, and what a great time we had – Ripley Show is a great day out!
As always, the animals are beautiful, but it’s people watching that makes the day, Yorkshire folk at their best; judging, relaxing, exhibiting and enjoying a day in the country, God’s finest indeed.
The show venue is Ripley Castle Park, Harrogate HG3 3EA.
The show is organised by The Ripley and District Agricultural and Horticultural Society, a member of the Yorkshire Federation of Show Societies.
The show represents the local farming and country community and the organisers are very grateful to Sir Thomas Ingilby Bt for permission to hold the show in the beautiful grounds of Ripley Castle.
There are many animals on show including the following classes – I hope you like some of my photos, and make a date for next year!
