Yesterday was the local Christmas light switch on, and the council had coupled it with a visit from the fair and a fireworks display, a local radio station was putting on a show too so I thought we'd go along. If you remember my post about the Circus coming to town, you'll remember these sort of things are not really Chloes favourite, and she panics about the noise, the dark, the scary rides, more so in the past couple of years than she ever did when she was younger, so she was not as eager as me and the boys about going along, but once we got there she soon got into the spirit of it
This is the first time I've ever been to a Christmas light switch on show and I am so glad we went along, the atmosphere was great, the entertainment awesome and we all had so much fun!
and the rides, so many rides,
I wanted to take so many more photos but with so much going on I hardly had a chance, the fair is at Swadlincote every weekend now until Christmas so I may well go back just to take photos!
The only down side being the price, every ride was at least £2 per person per go, which means that money disappears so very fast, a firm favourite for my three is the Fun House, even Chloe dared go on and she loved it!
After we'd ate burgers, candy floss and other sickly goodies and experienced the thrill of the fair
I actually managed to set my camera into the correct mode and capture some great shots of the fireworks
It really was a great evening, I may even put up my own Christmas decorations and lights now!
