ramblings and things
Founded in March 1278, the Fair is one of the largest in Europe, attracting showmen and rides from all over Europe, it is now run from the Saturday nearest 16 October for a week, and is notorious for attracting rain, the infamous " Hull Fair Weather".
Spinning hither and thither
Passing to and fro
Climbing high to upside down
Then hurtling fast towards the ground
Whirling and turning to here and there
Just some of the rides at the City's Fair:
Dart a card, hook a duck,
Some games of skill but mainly luck
Toffee Apples Burgers, Candy floss
Fish and chips and other favoured nosh,
Massed crowd moving aimlessly around
The flashing lights the wall of sound.
Hull Fair Weather.
They say with a note of pain
Because it nearly always
Pours with rain;
Middle of October every year
Our annual sign Christmas draws near.
They gather for a week
To disperse and be gone
Moving continually on and on.
