GETTING READY FOR BRIGG HORSE FAIR 2017
Traveller community members have already started arriving in town ahead of Brigg Horse Fair 2017.
The historic annual event during which steeds are traded in traditional fashion will take place on land off Station Road on Saturday, August 5 - starting about 9.30am and continuing into the afternoon.
A growing number of travellers are now parking their caravans on the site near the railway station.
Horses and even some donkeys have been brought along.
With August 5 falling on a Saturday this year a big attendance of spectators is expected, as many people who work Monday to Friday will be able to get.
