Fun fairs bring amusement parks to you

funfair or simply fair (e.g., "county fair", "state fair") is a small to medium sized traveling show primarily composed of stalls and other amusements. In the UK and much of Europe, individual rides and stalls are run by different, independent showmen who all converge for the duration of the fair, then often go their separate ways to set up at fairs in other towns. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fun_fairs]. These fairs can be seen across the country in varying sizes and with many different rides and stalls. They are often self-contained and sell food, drinks and confectionery so you can enjoy the rides without having to leave the fair grounds. 
                                                      There was a fun fair in my local park recently and I took a stroll over to see what they had to offer and the pictures below are what I saw there...


   
I love fun fairs! They are brilliant and the rides are far less elaborate (not to mention dangerous) than traditional Theme Parks like Thorpe Park or Alton Towers. The best thing about fun fairs is that they move around the country and therefore you will find one in a part near you at least a couple of times a year, a great afternoon out with the children or for a couple seeking some fun in the sun or for a group of friends wanting to hang out... just about anyone can find something to do and enjoy at a fun fair.
