THERE was fun for all the family as Mirfield held its biggest annual show yet.
The event, at the Huddersfield Road showground yesterday, started with a horse and pony show.
Craft stalls opened soon after, as did traditional exhibition classes, such as flowers, vegetables, poultry, fur and feather.
These ran alongside more unusual events - like the annual tripe-eating competition.
For children, there was the pleasanter option of a jelly-eating contest.
Mirfield men also got out their aprons to take up the ``men only" baking class challenge of making a fatless sponge cake.
A new attraction, added at the last minute, was a demonstration of an 1850 horse-powered threshing machine by local farmer Richard Haigh.
The highlight of the show was the crowning of Kelly Skiba as Miss Mirfield. The contest was revived after a two-year absence from the show.
The show committee received a special award from Mirfield Civic Society.
Society chairman Imelda Marsden handed over the award to congratulate the committee for organising the event.
Show chairman Betty Taylor said: "We are particularly pleased to receive an award from the civic society. The award is to the whole committee for organising a well-attended and appreciated event for local people."
