On Saturday we visited the Haddington Agricultural show for the first time. The show is held annually in East Fortune, by the museum of flight.
The weather was dry but rather windy but that didn’t stop us all enjoying the show. We were pleasantly surprised at how much was on offer to see and do for all the family.
On an agricultural note there was a variety of animals and livestock with different riding disciplines, cattle and sheep being shown. There were also a large number of massive shiny tractors on display and some beautifully restored classic tractors and machinery.
There were a selection of tents with delicious home-baking, various crafts to try and also to buy, a children’s tent with activities, an educational tent with chickens and some fascinating bees in a clear hive (I very much want to get some bees next year now so there may be a future post or two on this!) and more.
There was also a massive beer tent and large a number of marketing and charitable tents and food stalls. For children there was also a selection of large inflatables and toy stalls as well as an educational tent, children’s ten, Enjoy-a-ball and more.
All this and yet there were none of the crowds of the bigger shows such as the Highland show in Edinburgh. We’ll definititely be back next year.
