1st August marks Yorkshire Day! The idea of Yorkshire Day came about during a meeting of the Yorkshire Ridings Society in 1974, and the first ever Yorkshire Day was celebrated on 1st August 1975, also being the anniversary of the Battle of Minden.
 
On Yorkshire Day people celebrate the historic county. Members of the society read a declaration of the integrity of Yorkshire at each of the four Bars of York; the gates into the old walled city. The declaration is read facing into each of the three ridings and into the city.
 
Of course some people just eat an extra Yorkshire pudding.
