Children’s Fancy Dress

Children's Fancy Dress Competition

All children are invited to enter this year’s competition – with prizes for all. The Mirfield Show Children’s Fancy Dress Competition has become very popular very quickly since being added to the running order only five years ago. It is usually judged by the mayor or guest opener, and there are usually prizes for all – it was a great success last year and something not to miss out on.

Children’s Fancy Dress Theme 2017

Costumes can be on any theme – all are eligible to win prizes – but there are special prizes for costumes that depict any aspect of this year’s theme of The 1960s. Prizes and rosettes will be presented to the wearers of the costumes that the judge likes the best on the day.
