The 69th staging of the annual Denbigh Agricultural, Industrial and Food Show got off to its usual colourful start on Saturday.
The three-day event that is being held on the outskirts of May Pen in Clarendon, showcases the best of farming practices and innovation, along with industrial developments in the sector, and from the outlay of exhibitors in place, showgoers should be well informed and entertained by the exhibitions and the accompanying array of fun attractions and competitions.
Agriculture, Fisheries and Mining Minister, Floyd Green, and his team are already on the grounds doing the rounds of inspection and overview before the official ceremony a later today.
Already, the judging of top-quality livestock is well under way, as too the parading of the farm queen competitors, with the parish booths all primed for the usual keen competition for bragging rights.
Amid it all, the stage is now set for a number of major features like the agro games, including farming know-how, and the big farm queen pageant late in the afternoon into evening.
Sunday’s events will involve a gospel concert, and Monday, a reggae showcase.
