THIS year's Suffolk Show is on course to beat the highest of expectations, organisers have said.
The fantastic sunshine and warm temperatures have meant thousands upon thousands of people have flocked to Trinity Park in Ipswich.
Show director Peter Over said they were well on course to exceed the 90,000 visitors they expected to welcome through the gates over the two days.
'The day has gone better than we ever dreamed,' he said. 'The weather has been fantastic and people have turned up in their thousands to support us.'
He said the highlight of the day was a display by an Apache helicopter from Wattisham, where troops simulated rearming and refueling the aircraft in a hostile environment.
'It was a massive highlight,' Mr Over said. 'Coupled with the good weather it has made an already great show into a fantastic show.
