THE fair is in town - and it's brought fun for the whole family.
On the St Andrews Road car park behind Sainsbury's, the fair boasts many varying rides from the very big white knuckle variety, to the medium and small, including waltzers, carousels, dodgems and many more.
There are also stalls and games like hook a duck and a shooting range, and a wide selection of catering stalls serving everything from burgers to candyfloss.
"It has something to offer the whole family, any age, any interest," said Marshall Waddington, organiser of the fair and Chairman of the Showmen's Guild in Yorkshire.
Attractions include one of the newest on the fairground circuit, and one of the oldest.
The newest is the Dutch monster 2Extreme.
At 165ft from ground, it is the tallest single-armed `bomber' in Europe - maybe even the world, say fair bosses.
It is brand new and Huddersfield will be only its second outing.
It cost around £500,000.
The oldest ride at the fair is a full-sized traditional carousel built in 1881.
It originally ran on steam, but has since been converted to diesel.
It still features the original paper organ, which will be running throughout the fair offering an alternative to the pumping rock and disco music of the rest of the rides.
The fair was opening today at 1pm and is open every day until Tuesday, opening earlier at 11 am on Bank Holiday Monday.
