*Excludes Sun 7 Oct* Hull Fair opens on Friday 5 October bringing white knuckle rides, tasty treats, traditional fairground stalls, bright lights and music to the city.
The well-known sounds, sights, smells and excitement of the largest travelling fair in Europe offers something for everyone from the young to the old, whether you love the fast and furious or the traditional fairground offer.
Lord Mayor of Hull, Councillor Pete Allen said: “The traditions of Hull Fair never fail to pull in the crowds and create a fantastic atmosphere in the city. We welcome visitors new and old to enjoy all the fun of the fair!”
The fair, which has more than 300 attractions, runs until Saturday 13 October (closed Sunday 7 October) and opens from 2 – 11pm daily (from 12noon on Saturday).
This year sees the XXL ride come to the fair for the first time; a 40m tall large frisbee ride, perfect for thrill seekers!
For those who like to keep their feet firmly on the ground there are in excess of 100 stalls offering games such as bingo, hook-a-duck and darts as well as an array of food outlets bringing food from around the world. New tastes such as Raclette Swiss Cheese, Yorkshire Pudding wraps, haloumi and cured meats will complement traditional favourites including nougat, pommie granites, toffee apples, candy floss, brandy snap and hot dogs.
The fair brings 80 rides for children including trampolines, fun houses, helter skelters and mini versions of other rides such as mini Miami, mini waltzers and jumping jack. Whilst for adults and families there are traditional favourites such as dodgems and waltzers as well as a variety of faster and higher rides offering extra thrills and spills and views over the fairground and across Hull.
