Hull Fair By Day Series- 3
I found that Hull Fair during the day is a little bit creepy. In the past few years I’ve not been able to go as much, what with being in Newcastle at university, but before that I used to go every year! Now, some of the people there might look a bit questionable but the darkness of the autumn nights obviously hides a multitude of sins and the fair is all about the lights, noises, smells and the hustle and bustle of people. By day the fair looks very different, and really reminded me of an abandoned American town or village that you see in old photographs or in scary films. We got to the fair at about 2ish, which is when the fair opens, and apart from the main street where the food trucks are lined up, it was pretty much empty. Like I’ve said in a previous post, I can’t remember the last time I walked around during the day, so this time it was nice to take it all in. It’s safe to say the magic of the fair isn’t there during the day, maybe it’s the strange airbrushed paintings of people that don’t look human on all of the rides, they’re just scary in the cold light of day. Seriously, what are they about?
