Hollycombe is usually a day time activity but they open on selected nights through the year and this coming Saturday (19 October) is the last Fairground at Night opening for this year, and happens to be a Halloween special too! We thought the kids would enjoy the adventure in the dark, and they sure did.
After a short queue to get in, we walked past the railway, a small steam train which we would later come back to. First up was the Carousel, and with Doodles & I sharing a horse we were able to ride three-a-breast for a race!
Next were the chair-o-planes...

The Big Wheel was a highlight (not for me unfortunately, as I find myself suddenly afraid of heights since becoming a mother!) but I could hear great whoops of delight from the carriage behind us as Spiderboy enjoyed going to the top. Doodles & I sat a little more serenely and enjoyed picking out the rides we wanted to go on next from high up on our vantage point.

With a quick visit to the toilet before leaving, Doodles couldn't keep her eyes open and promptly fell asleep on the loo. Spiderboy wasn't too far behind with his eyes closing before we drove out of the car park. We had a lovely family evening, and they have been talking about when they can go again ever since.
