Over 500 exhibits adorned the show benches at North Antrim Horticultural Association’s 85th Annual Show in St Patrick’s Parish Centre.
The exhibitors produced a magnificent display of flowers, fruit, vegetables, home industries, handcrafts and floral art and the competition for cups and prizes was extremely keen.
