Northcroft Park this morning following the departure of most of the fair vehicles. I hope the fee they pay for using the park covers the restitution costs. Has it been this bad before?

It does always seem to recover but this year has been exceptionally wet so we shouldn't be surprised. Fact is, we have a large area in town that could easily serve as a venue for the fair. It is a bit of a high spot in the local calendar mainly for the younger age group so I wouldn't like to see it banned but the Market place and Northbrook Street might be considered for future years. Problem there though is that the Saturday market may need relocted for the one day.

And the Wharf, seems reasonable to me, I hate the fair but lots of other people seem to enjoy it.
