Thousands of people flocked to another successful Honiton Show, which was put on under sunny skies.

The popular event was held at Honiton Showground last week, and pulled in visitors from around the country.

Guests were delighted by several hot billings in the main ring, including a performance from Bolddog Lings Freestyle Motocross Team.

There were also plenty of ribbons won as the usual sheep and cow competitions were held, with some expert judging on show.

A friendly, but competitive, tug o’ war competition also drew in a large crowd of spectators.

On the lower field, a grand array of vintage agricultural machines were showcased under the sun, while a food hall bursting with local produce attracted hundreds of hungry diners.

Kids had plenty to choose from with a bouncy castle, ferret racing and pony rides just some of the entertainment on offer.

Shoppers also enjoyed browsing more than 400 trade stands which pitched up at this year’s event.
