The last Thursday in November. Thanksgiving in America. Street Fair in Didcot. For one evening the main street through town closes to traffic, to allow rides and stalls to set up and the crowds to take over. Children look forward to it for weeks. For one evening the street is full of bright lights, rides, tombolas, a ferris wheel, hot dogs, candy floss, entertainment, and crowds of people, young and old, all out to enjoy themselves. It’s an evening where children eat too many sweets, everyone hopes to win something special on the tombola, countless pounds exchange hands in return for a ride on the Ghost Train or the Helter Skelter or the Teacups, ducks are hooked, tat prizes are won, and people have fun. Love it or hate it, it’s definitely a big thing.
