VIDEO: A fun-packed Horbury Show

Puppets, pooches and a passing spitfire made for a fun-packed Horbury Show yesterday.

Thousands of people flocked to the event at Carr Lodge Park.

A spitfire flypast was among the highlights of the 17th annual show, organised by the Horbury and Ossett Phoenix Rotary Club.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight waggled its wings at the crowd as it flew off into the distance after circling the town.

Entertainment in the main arena included performances by the Wakefield Wildcat Kittens, The Wildcat Dolls and the Westgate Cheerleaders.

The Strongman competition proved a popular attraction in the small arena, where musclemen were given a range of challenges to complete, including lifting a van as many times as possible.

There was also music from the Horbury Victoria Brass Band, and a Punch and Judy show proved to be a hit with people of all ages, as did the Faceless theatre company’s giant heron that enjoyed mingling with visitors.

As ever, the show really did have something for everyone - including family pets, with the annual dog show attracting pampered pooches of all shapes and sizes.
