The fair should have been in town this week with the carnival parade taking place on Saturday.
However with covid restrictions still in force and rising cases of the Delta variant, both have been cancelled. Organisers of the well dressing are hoping however they may be able to do a smaller scale event in the late summer/early autumn.
But with lots of us missing out on our traditional trip to the fair and a candy floss, we’re taking a look back at carnival funfairs over the years thanks to these brilliant photos from Dave Homer.
And for the second part of our look back, thanks to Dave’s photos, see More great photos of Buxton carnival funfair over the years.
