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



Sometimes fast 



Sometimes slow



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



Travelling showmen 



Moving continually on and on.
