The Friendly Show


Every June, we put on our Wrangler Jeans, our cowboot shirts and boots, and head out to the Mount Larcom Show, or The Friendly Show, as it's known by.

It's the one and only agricultural show in the area, and it gets better and better every year. 

It has the classics, the showjumping and stud cattle, the animal nursery, wood chopping, show dogs, a central arena full of events, jams, cakes and crafts, market stalls, fireworks, music...the list goes on!

The day was just perfect.  Full of sunshine, and friendly faces and kids and cattle and icecream!  It's a permanent date on our calendar and although the crowd is big, there is always someone we know!

Thanks for sharing your wonderful day out. Country shows are fantastic; I always think so much better than the big capital city shows. The weather was kind to you as well going by the blue skies and the lovely sunshiny pictures. Loved the ducks.

I love going to the local show! Our one is held in January, and it's always stinking hot. Looks like you and the family had a great day out. Great photos Michelle...though the one with the snake is freaking me out!! lol. I am NOT a country girl.

Love that they call it The Friendly Show instead of the regular boring royal shows or whatever. Thanks for letting me see what goes on in the country :)
