Visitors are enjoying more than 30 rides and attractions across the site including the Mexican Wave, Music Explosion, Freak Out, Over The Top and Extreme along with fairground favourites the waltzers, dodgems and fun house.

The fair was originally due to be held on the hard-standing site at Towneley Park after last year’s event was moved there because of the wet weather.

Following days of blistering sunshine and soaring temperatures though the council decided to return it to Fulledge.

Sunday has been designated “Fun Day Sunday” with free family entertainment added to the proceedings. The fair finishes on Monday.
