EVERYONE will be delighted to hear that The Drymen Show is back after the organisers were forced to cancel the popular event last year.
The Strathendrick Agricultural Society event didn’t go ahead in 2012 due to a potential risk of E.coli from cowpats in the field but the committee have worked hard since then to ensure that the tradition continues as it has done since 1816.
It’s set to go ahead this year on Saturday, May 25 in the Showfield at Drymen Bridge.
Primarily an agricultural show the event continues to promote the best livestock from throughout Scotland and further afield, including cattle, sheep, heavy and light horses, highland ponies, rabbits, poultry and their newest addition Alpacas.
Many visitors enjoy being able to view the various animals and being able to identify the winners in each class.
There will also be trade stands, a display of work by local primary schools, a football competition, the Rural Tent and of course the children’s favourite the fun fair.
A host of events will be held in the main ring, starting as early as 9.30am with the judging of the heavy horses and vintage tractor classes as well as a display by Kirkintilloch and District Dog Club.
There will also be a hilarious series of competitive events from their very own SSS Young Farmers and an even funnier duck race.
They are also delighted to welcome back their main feature Riders Of The Storm, who will entertain everyone with two separate sessions.
