Abingdon Michaelmas Street Fair - 2 of 3

Despite threats of rain the weather kept dry. It was a squeeze getting along Ock Street with all the crowds. Just a few pictures of some of the rides.

Jungle Fever with the County Hall alongside

The swing roundabout near Vauxhall Belingers.

Superbowl

Dodgems

Storm. This is one of the two highest rides. Its a giant rotating arm with a little cage at each end.

Finally Chaos.

Fantastic pics as always. Nice to see the tradition of the fair continuing. I first went in 1973 aged 5. We had friends who lived so close to the big wheel that riders could see into their bathroom!

I no longer live in Abingdon but visit family there regularly. Thanks to checking out This Abingdon daily I often know more about what's going on than my dad just up the Radley Road. Keep up the good work!

It is so informative and always with such great photos - THANK YOU :-)
