DESPITE a forecast of poor weather, crowds turned out in their thousands to view the finest produce, livestock and handy-work at the 122nd Ashbourne Show.
The event on Saturday was well supported not only by members of the public, but by farmers, growers, crafters and local businesses.
Organsied each year by the Ashbourne Shire Horse Society, Osmaston Polo Ground was buzzing with activity in every part of the site.
As well as the popular Shires, light horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pets and poultry were on display and entered into judging on the day.
Ashbourne Camera Club set up in its usual marquee, as did the local WI groups and a large stand was taken up by Ashbourne Vintage Tractor Club.
Varied trade stands offered a shop window on some of the best firms from the area and marquees were set up for food and drink producers and local crafters.
Displays in the arena took place through the day, culminating in the impressive grand parade.
Top honour this year, the King Edward Cup, was presented to T and J Belfield.
