Crowds help moorland show make up for 2012
Lustleigh enjoyed a bumper Bank Holiday show with thousands descending on the south Dartmoor showground.
The crowds enjoyed a horticultural competition, dog show, displays and a 10k run.
Lustleigh Horticultural Society's show was booming, with more than 600 entries.
"We had 135 classes," said Heather Brown. "Last year our entries were down to 400 because of the bad weather, so we're pleased the numbers have risen again.
"The floral entries were particularly good, as were the children's entries – they created fun faces with vegetables."
Jill Hepworth, the society's show manager, said it was a great day out.
"We had masses of entries in our cookery classes and it was wonderful to see so many children's entries, which was very encouraging," she said.
Show treasurer Patrick Barker said up to 4,000 people had flocked to the event.
"We've raised in the region of £8,000, which will go towards paying off last year's show, which was a disaster because of bad weather," he said, adding that leftover money would go towards local organisations.
Mr Barker said the main draws were the "human sheep herding", in which teams of four had to herd ten sheep against the clock, and the baling and wrapping demonstration, which was popular with visitors.
"The dog show was also a massive part of the event and is growing in popularity year on year," he said. "And our 10k run was also good with more than 100 entries. It's said to be one of the toughest 10k runs in the county."
