Hull Fair 2012

14 10 2012

Hull Fair is one of Europe’s largest travelling funfairs which comes to Hull-East Yorkshire, 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 travelers from a wide variety of different regions from around the country. A couple of the oldest and yearly featured stalls include Bob Cavers fish and chip stall, Roast Horse Chestnut wagons and sweets stalls selling pomegrantes, toffee apples, candy floss and brandy snap.

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.
