AN Easter tradition that almost died brought a flash of colour and noise to Huddersfield.
People young and old flocked to the Easter Fair when it opened on land off St Andrew's Road, Turnbridge.
And both the visitors and the fairground staff were delighted with the sunny start to their Easter stay.
There had been doubts that the fair could go ahead on the St Andrew's Road site, because of safety fears over old cellars beneath a part of the car park.
But stringent safety checks by The Showman's Guild and Kirklees Council gave the all-clear and the fair opened as planned for its six-day run, until Tuesday.
Popular attractions include the Move It ride and the Crazy Wave. But there were also queues for the hotdog stall and the amusement arcade.
