We're heading there tomorrow - need to see if any of our cakes have got ribbons. Our eldest usually goes with school via the Ag club or the Orchid club but she missed out this year due to a school trip to Japan. We save all year and took our cans to the recycling centre this morning so we're all ready for the off! Ours are old enough now though that they're not terribly bothered by the plastic showbags but seduced instead by the edible ones; we allow them 1 showbag & 1 ride each and if they want anymore it comes out of their pocket money.
We definitely take our own lunch (but we tend to take our own lunch anywhere we go!), although last year our son had a Dagwood dog for the first time and has gone off to bed dreaming of another!
I love the Show and when I was there on Thursday dropping off our entries I was just the teeniest bit jealous of the families there with their animals and caravans and the vibe of something about to happen.
