Monday, Tuesday.


Every year at the end of April we have the fair here. I used to love it when I was a kid. Did you?
Here just a little impression of what we saw during our short walk. Usually around this time of year the weather is a lot better and definitely warmer. Now  it was too cold to stay longer.
The photo of the big wheel in the dark I made last night from our window.

A big thank you to the hosts.

We had a fair in town too growing up and I always went with some girlfriends.
I see some yummy cotton candy in your photos - pure sugar and sticky, but a special treat at this type of event.

Bij slecht weer kun jij dus vanaf het balkon ballengooien, dat is handig ;-)!! Vroeger als kind ging ik graag naar de kermis, nu heb ik er niets meer mee al zijn er mensen in het dorp die er het hele jaar voor sparen. Maar voor hen speelt het grootste deel van de kermis zich af in de zaal.

Een fijne week, Riet! Lieve groet, Ingrid

Oh Yes, I loved going to the fair when I was young and I took my son when he was young. The food and the rides were a treat. If I went now, it would be to look at the arts and crafts tables. Wonderful photos, Riet! Have a happy week!

O jaaaaa kermis, altijd een speciale sfeer vind ik, hier ook altijd zo rond eind April. Wat prachtig lieve Rietje dat rad zo in de avonduren te kunnen bewonderen, heel speciaal.

En bij het zien van die heerlijke zoete roze suikerspin liep het water me even in de mond. Vroeger was ik daar altijd dol op en ik denk dat als ik het nu voor me zie dat ik er weer eentje ga kopen, hihi HEERLIJK!!!

Ik heb gewonnen, ik heb gewonnen, jippieeeeee

Fijne week lieverd,

Veel liefs,
Josephine

Mooie collage. De kermis leent zich altijd erg goed voor het maken van wat sfeervolle foto's in de avondlicht, maar daar is het mij de laatste tijd toch echt nog wat te koud voor.

A fair would sure put the winter blues away and say hello to spring. Valerie

Wow! Action photography all in one place ~ fantastic! ^_^

I haven't been to the fair in years, looks like everyone is enjoying themselves. Have a great week Riet.

Lorrie said...

It looks like everyone had a lot of fun at the fair. I used to love going as a child.

Pamela Gordon said...

What a fun collage of the sites at the fair! I never got to the fair until I was in my teen years and the only ride I liked was the Scrambler. No ferris wheel for me as I'm afraid of heights. I hope your weather warms up and you have a great week. Pamela

What beautiful photos! We always went when I was a kid...such nice memories. Everything looks even better lit up at night!

Pie said...

Fun pics. Love going to fairs. I played too. Mine are here and here.

lina@happy family said...

Many fun things to do at a fair! Enjoying your pics a lot :)

SmilingSally said...

Yes, when I was younger, I enjoyed the fair. Then, one time I got so dizzy and sick on a ride that I've never wanted to return.

Thanks for playing.

Happy Blue Monday, Riet.

A great set of photos - they conjure up the magic and fun of the fairground beautifully.

debra @ homespun said...

That fair looks like so much FUN! :)

edenhills said...

That looks like so much fun! Love the giant bubbles. :-)

Art and Sand said...

Riding in those bubbles looks like so much fun.

I loved fairs as a child, but I'm not big on the crowds now.

klaproos said...

wat een feestelijk blog lieve riet,
is dat al voor morgen:-)

Linda said...

Hi Riet, lovely photos! I am amazed, especially, at the one you took from your window. It turned out beautifully.

Madelief said...

Wat een geweldig uitzicht Riet! Leuk om de kermis van zo'n afstand te volgen. Hopelijk valt de herrie een beetje mee?

Veel plezier morgen met Koninginnedag!

Looks fun...I loved to visit a fair when I was a kid.

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes! I always loved the fairs every year when I was growing up! Fun memories, Riet! Hope you have a lovely week!

Fairs always conjure up such fun memories.

I love fairs,they bring out the kid in me! Your pics are fantastic!

EG CameraGirl said...

It looks so festive and it must be lots of fun!

Lucy Corrander at Loose and Leafy said...

I'm sure this is spectacular fun for many but, in response to your question - I'm not a great fan of fairs. I find the bustle and crowds and noise and movement overwhelming. I wish I liked them better!

Karen said...

Such a fun looking place.

Hi Riet, I'm back from my blog break. Our 50th anniversary was wonderful, with many friends and family surrounding us with love. We are blessed. It is good to be able to visit you today.

It has been colder here in the mountains too. Spring is late and wind and rain are knocking all the blooms down as well. Not a very pretty Spring this year.

We too enjoyed the fair with our children especially. Your photo at night is very nice. A nice view for sure. It looks like a terrific time for all.

Thank you again for your Ecard and well wishes for our anniversary. It seems like it has gone on and on. Smile. Starting in Dec. in Europe and ending with my most recent post about the celebration. I planned the party and made all of the centerpieces and candy mints etc. It was lots of fun and it felt like I was planning a wedding. Smile We are so blessed to have loving friends and family.
Wishing you warmer days.
xo, Jeanne

What fun! Love these shots. I take the kids to the fair every year - at least once, sometimes twice...

Love fairs!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

When we lived in Germany, right up against the border with the Netherlands, every year in spring and fall there was a Kermis that came to our little town. It was not large, but what a lot of fun it was for everyone!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh yes, I loved the county fair! And still enjoy things like this occasionally, if only for the photo ops! Great memories...

Too bad it was so chilly this year. I'd think that little kid on the bungee jump would really have been cold, but I guess young ones don't notice that as much.

Fun at the fair!

Goedemorgen lieve Rietje,

Meisje wat een toffe foto's heb je gemaakt.
Het lijkt wel een sprookje!
En wat een mooie kleuren...ik wordt weer even kind
als ik hier naar kijk.

Lieve groetjes,

Looks like fun at the park!

biebkriebels said...

Een kermis voor je deur, dat is makkelijk. Je kunt de mensen in het reuzenrad een hand geven vanuit je raam. Ik vind een kermis tegenwoordig een hoop lawaai, het is meer voor de jeugd.

HELENE said...

I haven't been to a funfair in years! Not since the kids were young. I am still waiting for the grandchildren to appear, I guess I will get a second round when that happens :-)

Looks like a great time!
