More than 1,000 people enjoyed the thrills and spills of Belper Spring Fair, as good weather blessed the majority of the weekend.
The event got off to its ‘best start ever’ on Thursday with visitors flocking to The Coppice car park to ride attractions, including new crowd-pleaser Chill Out Miami ride.
Friday was hit by showers, however, the sun shone on Saturday’s thrill-seekers, with families riding the bumper cars, waltzer, mini rollercoaster and giant paratrooper, as well as enjoying candy floss and traditional fair games.
Organiser Neil Calladine said: “We were very satisifed with the way it went. The spring fair seems to be establishing itself in the town now and we will certainly be doing it again in 2015.
“Thursday was the best night we have had since we started back in Belper and there was a really good crowd in the Coppice.
“We had similar numbers to last year overall - around 1,000 people came along. A lot of families came - there was a really nice atmosphere. It was very friendly and there was no trouble or bother. Thanks to Belper Town Council’s help we were able to charge a reduced rate for the rides.
“The new Chill Out Miami ride went down really well with everybody.”
Proctors Fun Fairs will return to Belper from October 30 for the autumn fair and look out for a competition in the Belper News for free tickets.
