Fairground fun - Nottingham Goose Fair an annual travelling fair with fairground amusements and rides Nottingham Nottinghamshire England UK GB Europe
The Nottingham Goose Fair is an annual travelling funfair held at the Forest Recreation Ground in Nottingham, England, during the first week of October.
Although it is now known for its fairground rides and attractions, the fair started as a livestock and trade event, with a reputation for its excellent cheese. The name "Goose Fair" is derived from the thousands of geese that were driven from the Lincolnshire fens in the East of England to be sold in Nottingham at the fair each year
Almost half a million visitors flock to Nottingham's Goose Fair annually.These days it is mostly famous for its fairground rides and games, boasting over five hundred attractions, some for thrill seekers and many that appeal to the whole family. The many family attractions include traditional bumper cars, helter skelters, funhouses, ghost trains and waltzers. There are several family stalls (such as Hook-a-duck) with prizes to be won, and a giant ferris wheel that provides an aerial view of the fair. Conventional fairground food and refreshments are also on sale throughout the fair, including hot dogs, candy floss, doughnuts, and mushy peas with mint sauce
