2nd Tuesday

By Philip_H
Taken today at Hull Fair.

Hull Fair is one of Europe's largest travelling funfairs, which comes to Hull, England for one week, from noon on Friday to midnight the following Saturday, encompassing the second Tuesday of October each year. The fair is open every day between these days except Sunday. Unlike small local fairs, Hull Fair attracts rides, attractions and travellers from a wide variety of different regions from around the country.

The fair is one of Hull's biggest traditions, as well as one of its oldest, having reached its 700th anniversary in 1993. Carrying on with such tradition, the fair is opened by the Lord Mayor of Hull on the opening evening, normally at 5 pm.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Perchines'.

Best wishes,
Philip

Don't think I've ever known about this one. A well presented helter skelter and a Beatles song now going round my head! GrinGrin

A wonderful image, one than brings back many childhood and fatherhood memories, when I as a kid, or watching my children hurtling down the Helter Skelter on a tatty old sacking mat.

I'd forgotten about the tatty old sacking mat!

Always been fascinated but never dared give a helter skelter a try - fear of heights sort of makes it unlikely I'll ever meet that challenge! Makes a super image though and enjoyed your info as well.
