Description

Hull Fair 17 OCT 2008

Hull Fair is one of Europe's largest travelling funfairs, which comes to Hull, for one week, from noon on Friday to midnight the following Saturday, encompassing the 11th of October each year. 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. It first opened from 9 to 23 March 1278.
