Screams and shouts of delight could be heard all around Scarborough as the fair once again rolled into town.
The annual fair has been a fixture in the town for more than 30 years and once again the William Street coach park was full of children enjoying all the fun it had to offer.
Organiser Roger Tuby said that overall he had been very happy with how this year had gone.
“We will be down in terms of numbers I think, as we have been throughout this year as people are finding money a bit tighter, as we all know,” he said. “But overall I think it went very well and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and we are already looking forward to next year.”
Among the attractions were Devil Rock, a huge pendulum ride, while the Vertigo, one of the tallest rides in the country, swung riders around at speeds of over 50mph.
