Long Eaton once again welcomes its annual Chestnut Fair this month, when the town centre will come alive to the sights, sounds and thrills of the traditional street fair.
The fair, which is based on Waverley Street, will be held from Thursday 21 November to Saturday 23 November and will be given a funfair-style opening by the Mayor of Erewash, Councillor Val Clare.
Councillor Clare will officially open the 2013 event at 6.15pm on Thursday 21 November from the traditional fairground favourite, the dodgems ride.
The Chestnut Fair is now in its 14th year and always features rides for all the family, from roundabouts for the very young to the latest thrill-seeker rides for daredevil fans. The fair is open from 6pm until 10pm on Thursday and Friday and from 1pm until 10pm on Saturday.
On Saturday 23 November residents will also have the chance to check out of the impressive fairground model show and exhibition, which is taking place at Long Eaton Town Hall. The eye-catching exhibition is completely free and represents a great chance to see the fair in miniature form. It will be open to view from 10am - 5pm on Saturday only.
