Nottingham Goose Fair

Selepas berbuka puasa semalam- kami ke Goose Fair, acara tahunan setiap awal Oktober di Nottingham, cuma 4 hari diadakan. Dekat sekali dengan rumah kami, just walking distance di kawasan padang Forest Fields. It's over 500 attractions from large rollercoasters, the water rapid ride, giant wheel or the terrifying Wall of Death, to children's and family rides, market stalls and craft marquees.

No one knows where Goose Fair got its name. Legend has it that it comes from the hundreds of geese, which were at one time driven from Lincolnshire and Norfolk to be sold in Nottingham. This may seem far fetched but it could well be true because the fair is held at the time of year when geese are in their prime and roast goose was for centuries a traditional Michaelmas treat.
