Isle of Wight County Show on next weekend

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays will get the chance to visit a very special event during their time on the island.

The Isle of Wight County Show is taking place next Saturday (June 16th) and is likely to see hundreds of people head to the Royal Agricultural Showground in Northwood to mark the occasion, reports Island Pulse.

A wide range of attractions will be available to those who attend, including falconry displays, carriage driving and a parade of livestock champions.

There will also be gun dog displays and showjumping, so animal lovers are in for a treat.

Animals have always been a key part of the Isle of Wight County Show and this year, tourists will get the chance to see the best the island has to offer in terms of livestock.

Pigs, sheep and cows are all going to be paraded in front of the crowds at the Royal Agricultural Showground in Northwood on the day in what is sure to be one of the event's highlights.

The action is set to get underway at 10:00 BST and is expected to run until 17:00, while tickets are priced at just £5 for adults and £2.50 for youngsters between the age of 15 and 18. Kids 14 or under will get in for free if they are accompanied by a paying adult.

A small animal farm is one of the new additions to the fair in 2012, with little ones given the chance to handle goats, piglets and lambs.

The Fun Dog Show is likely to be another highlight of the event for all the family and visitors are encouraged to enter their own pet pooch into the show.

June is a big month for the Isle of Wight as acts such as Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Pearl Jam and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will be entertaining a crowd of more than 50,000 revellers at the Isle of Wight Festival from the 21st to the 24th.
