Sunshine and smiles were out in force for the 79th Littlewick Show yesterday.
Thousands of visitors enjoyed a feast of entertainment from classic cars to performing pups in one of Maidenhead's biggest one-day events.
Exhibitions and fairground rides ensured there was something for everyone as young and old descended on the Ascot Road showground.
The large collection of vintage cars always causes a stir and 81-year-old John Lockyer is a Littlewick veteran, having showcased his classic collection for the past 16 years.
"People always come and talk to me about my cars," said John, who brought his 1968 Daimler Sovereign this year.
"Some people come to look at them because they want to know which year it's from or because they used to have one of their own."
Live music was provided by The Maidenhead Concert Band, Pop Goes the Choir and local singer-songwriter Andy Davidson, who performs alongside some of the students he teaches in the area.
"I very much enjoy playing here," said Andy."It's a release for me and it's doing what I love."
The Circus Whiz workshop, fairground games and charity stalls were all on offer, as well as the chance to compete in the various traditional judged competitions.
Two-year-old Wirehaired Dachshund Kizzi was amongst those vying for prizes in the dog show and owner Elayne Brown said the show was a great chance for dog lovers to meet old friends and new.
Preparations can now begin for next year's show, which will mark its 80th anniversary.
