Last night the township of March came alive with a real carnival atmosphere. Broad Street, the main road through the town, was closed off to traffic and a fun fair filled the roadway. An RAF flight simulator for the adults and rides for the tiny tot’s were among the usual fun fair games for punters to try and win soft cuddly toys some as big as the recipients.

No fun fair would be complete without an air castle or slide.

The town Xmas tree which has a permanent home which is covered by a manhole for the rest of the year.
The main function of the carnival was of course switching on the Xmas lights which have been being erected around the town for the past few weeks. When we wandered up town this morning there was absolutely no sign of what had been there less than 12 hours earlier.
