The Agricultural Show started yesterday — with good weather expected to replace the rain that hit the opening morning.

Antwan Albuoy, one of the organisers of the three-day Botanical Gardens tradition, said the day started off slowly as a result of the rain, but that “people still came out”.

He added the crowds increased around noon when the rain stopped.

Mr Albuoy said the show was expected to continue with its usual large crowds today and tomorrow and that good weather was forecast for the next two days. Canine Stars, America’s top dog stunt show, will perform on every day of the event.

Jeff Sousa, the spokesman for the Ag Show, promised the show offered something for everyone.

Mr Sousa said last week that a wide range of poultry and pigs were among the animals on display, as well as flowers, art and a wide range of food.

Children aged 16 and under and seniors 65 years or older will get free entry to the showgrounds after insurance firm Axis Capital and HSBC offered sponsorship.

Other sponsors include Gibbons Company, the OIL Group of Companies, Harrington Hundreds supermarket, Care@Home Services, Stoltzfus Feed and Supply, Kirk Kitson, Neil and Carla Stempel, Gilbert Lopes and Alan Burland.

Sousa’s Landscape Management and Sousa’s Gardens are the main sponsor for Canine Stars.
