Annual Bath And West Show Opens To The Public

Farm Animals Ready for Their Close-Ups

The 155th Royal Bath and West Show kicks off in England.

Since 1852, Somerset, England, has celebrated all things agricultural with the Royal Bath and West Show, a four-day festival featuring interactive exhibits, local foods, and animal judging. Running from May 30 to June 2, this year's event is expected to draw some 135,000 visitors, but the livestock — all 10,000 of them — are clearly the stars of the show. Here, a few scenes from the animal house:
