Hometown Funfair!

We visited the funfair held in my hometown during the Chinese New Year holiday because Raimie was really excited to go, along with his cousins, aunts and uncle too.

Although already late at night (it was after 10.00pm), the fair was packed with people.
 
Plenty of young 'uns on group dates it seems. Some people came to the funfair even wearing their best clubbing dress!  Well, it was the Chinese New Year holiday so everyone must be wearing their Sunday best! (^.^)

Raimie felt he was too big for the rides at the funfair, but he waited around for his cousin give a go at the funfair rides, even accompanying them on one.

What he likes to do at funfairs is playing funfair arcade games.
He didn't win anything big but he had fun and that's what counts. ^-^

When was the last time you visit your neighbourhood funfair?

  6. Gosh, it's been so long since I went to one. For small towns with little entertainment, funfairs can be a source of great fun. I bet you enjoyed yourself too, right? LOL!

    Ha! True... all those diesel fumes from the rides. I conveniently forgot about that. :D

  14. Its amazing that fun fairs look pretty much the same all over the world with only slight differences. In Australia, we have a lot of them next to the beach during summer and they are a great childhood memory.

  15. @Japan Australia,
    They are indeed great childhood memory. And now, it's in my child's memories too. ^^
