Thousands of people flocked to Pier Road on Regatta Monday to experience the thrills of the fair.

The fair arrived the previous night to set up, a sight which was watched by huge crowds who gathered to watch it wind its way down Khyber Pass and onto the West Pier. And despite showers, spirits weren’t dampened with thrill-seekers enjoying the action.
