A Visit to a Fair

Every year a big fair is held in our city. This time my family and I went to the fair. It was held in a huge ground. Many people had come there. I could hear a great deal of noise, shouting and laughing. I saw many stalls for children with toys and sweets. I took a ride on a very big giant wheel and a lovely merry-go-round. On one corner there was a juggler amusing people with clever tricks and a snake charmer playing his flute pipe and also some kinds of vendors who had out up their tents to sell things.

My brother and I had some cotton candy and we were troubling our parents for more candies and balloons. I saw a stall where a lady was painting on the hands of the children. I also got one on my hand.

After spending half the day in the fair I went home tired and sleepy. But these moments will always be remembered by me.
