One week on from the main Michaelmas Fair and the Runaway Fair arrived on the Market Place yesterday (Sunday) in the rain.
The fair was underway throughout today (Monday), and the weather was better with just fine rain as evening arrived.
Traffic is diverted round by East St Helen Street and West St Helen Street during the Runaway Fair. It always feels strange sitting in our first floor lounge and seeing people sailing by, or halting, outside of our window – on the top deck of Oxford double decker buses.
I have not managed to get a good photo of the bus sailing by yet.
Talking of good photos, the Friends of Abingdon have a Abingdon Fair Photo Competition. Entries need to be in by midnight on Saturday 20 October.
