Up to twenty thousand people head to Stithians Show.

It is the biggest one day agricultural event in Cornwall's calendar, and can trace its history back to 1834.

It is twenty years since it moved to its current showground.

Yvonne Toms, General Secretary of Stithians Show, said: "In the horticulture marquee, we have a higher entry of sweet peas this year than ever before. And after last year's disastrous entries because of the weather, they're absolutely beautiful.

Organisers are hoping for record visitor numbers after last year's washout summer.

Yvonne Toms said: "They've been coming in from 6am, so it's good. This is our twentieth year on this, our new showground. Before that, it was in the middle of the village where it began nearly one hundred and eighty years ago. It's a jolly good day out and something different."
