All the fun of the fair

Carousel and Ferris Wheel
Saturday, September 26, 2015 to Sunday, November 1, 2015

During Sunderland Illuminations old and young alike are enjoying all the fun of the fair at Cliffe Park and just a little further along the road at Ocean Park.

With its giant observation wheel and carousels Cliffe Park has attracted thousands and with the roller rink opening every day of half term it’s likely to attract even greater numbers.

Ocean Park fun fair has been open every day from 4pm to 10pm and on Friday and Saturday 30 and 31 October will be doing something a little special with a ‘Halloween Spooktacular’.

With a chance to win prizes for those who come in fancy dress and some extra scary rides Ocean Park may be the place to be this Halloween.
