Carters Steam Fair At Chalkwell Park, Southend On Sea, Part 1, Thursday April 2nd 2015

95 ratings | 37134 views
Here is the first of a couple of videos ,showing Carters Steam Fair, when it came to Southend On Sea, for Easter 2015. In this first film, we have a look at the fairground after it has arrived, and the setting up is nearly complete. We see the various classic vehicles, trailers, and rides that go to making up this unique fairground. A reminder of an age long gone, with attractions dating from the 1930s. Hope you enjoy. And look out for part 2, which will show the fair in action, both in the day and at night.

Thanks Graham. Oh, i ll have to pay for my own rides then !!!! Ha ha. Im uploading Part 2 as i type this. Hope you enjoy. Its 20 mins of scenes that take us from day into night, giving some of the atmosphere that only the fair at night can bring. Thanx Richard.

Thankyou Alan for watching. Im hoping to go back Saturday, and film the fair at night with the rides in action, and all lit up, so look out for that. At moment, it has not stopped raining really in Southend, so lets hope it stops for a while. Cheers, Richard.
