The crowds were out on both Monday and Tuesday for the Michaelmas Fair.
There had been a lot of rain earlier in the day on both days, but it was mostly dry at the peak time of late afternoon and early evening.
The fair rides were not that different from previous years. But this view will change as the new old people’s flats are being built along Ock Street. The residents are going to have great views as some of the biggest rides will be opposite.
The best view, unless you own a drone, is from the high swing ride at the end of Ock Street.
This picture is taken from near Reeves chip shop where people sit along the wall and eat chips.
There are also lots of vans selling chips and donuts.
Some of our local restaurants offer more exotic street food. Dorindos dressed in ponchos for the occasion.
Traffic cannot get along High Street and Ock Street during the fair and so for three days, from Sunday to Tuesday, buses and cars are diverted.
A pink unicorn, made in China, joined the cuddly toys in our house today. There seemed to be a lot of people carrying pink unicorns at the fair. My guess is China is offloading a surplus.
The County Hall always looks good, and the bright lights from the fair make it look stunning.
Anyway, that is all for another year. By tomorrow the fair will be gone.
A few children’s rides will return next Sunday for the Monday Runaway Fair.
