Get set for all the fun of the Hertfordshire County Show
THOUSANDS of people will descend on the county over the bank holiday weekend for a spot of fun at the fair.
The 124th Hertfordshire County Show promises entertainment – and probably rain – by the bucketload, combining old fair favourites with several new additions as it celebrates the best the county has to offer.
Thrill seekers are in luck with free simulator rides, Hertfordshire Farmers have an intriguingly-named ‘Dancing Fork Truck Musical Hoedown’ to wow the crowds and Rockwood Dog Display Team will be jumping through hoops.
Organisers and the paying public will both be holding out for sparkling sunshine over the weekend, but latest forecasts predict constant rain showers on Saturday, although hopefully this won’t dampen spirits.
Whatever the weather, favourites such as the Bolddog motorcycle display, the Devil’s Horseman, all human circus, eagle and vulture show and the Royal British Legion Band will be ready to entertain.
