Magdalen Road Christmas Fair 2012

On Saturday December 1st, Magdalen Road (also known as "St Leonard's Village") was closed to traffic for a Christmas Fair.  Here are some pictures from that event.

Rides for children outside the pharmacy

Stalls on one side of the large marquee

Outside the delicatessen

Maxine in a festive hat outside the Village Bakery

The pavement was crowded

As dusk fell the lights illuminated shoppers and stalls

Bunting and bright lights

One of several shops which opened up on the pavement outside their premises

Food outside the Cafe Magdalen

More food outside Bon Gout delicatessen

Musical entertainment

More of the big marquee

The police put in an appearance

Exeter Brewery was a busy stall - so I snatched this picture in a quiet moment

A slight gap in the crowds allowed this picture to show the marquee

The eastern end of the marquee

Lights from the children's roundabout reflected in the window of Gibsons Plaice, which avoided the glare of bright street-lights

Bright lights on the "Teacup" ride
