All the fun of the fair…

This coming weekend is the annual Whitsun fair in Meerbusch. A chance for kids and adults alike to consume a diet of alcohol, fat, sugar, chemical additives and then go on rides which are guaranteed to have you splattering the fairground with vomit from a great height.

It’s an excellent opportunity for you to feed your children the sort of nutrician-free goodies which will make them hyperactive all night – thus ensuring you can stay and boogie in the beer-tent until dawn.

Hyperactivity guaranteed!

For our family the highlight of the weekend will be when we all get together on the horseracing game. This involves trying to roll a wooden ball into holes in a board. If you manage it, your horse will move forward by another one, two or three leaps. The winner of the race is awarded a cuddly toy to add to the burgeoning collection of Whit-fair animals which every child in Meerbusch possesses.

  1. Ah fairs! How much fun is that?

    Got the book started and I am really enjoying it. I went with Hubby yesterday to the hospital to have is knee’s checked and sat there, among the other orthopedic patients, laughing insanely. Hubby kept nudging me!

    Have a good day!

  2. That looks like a bunch of fun :D!
