Fun Fair ready for end of November
FN report that the 2019 Fun Fair has already arrived again at Pier 8/Praça do Povo, on the Funchal seafront, and assembly is taking place ready for the Christmas period. There were no problems with transportation and none are expected in meeting the scheduled opening date of November 29.
Rui Carvalho, responsible for the operation of the project, confirmed to the website the success of these Christmas and New Year holidays in Madeira, particularly since the return to the centre of Funchal three years ago, after several years in which the Fun Fair was located on the large area of waste ground at Praia Formosa. There will be the amusement park icon, the carousel, a larger simulator and “family fun that will surely please Madeirans and visitors between November 29th and January 6th. We will have the World Circus, with a renewed team, with cyclists, trapeze artists and many other new numbers”, between December 6th and January 6th.
Rui Carvalho recognizes that the space at Pier 8 is much more desirable, although “in past years, in other places, we have never stopped coming to Madeira and we have always provided these amusements. But of course it is much better to be in the centre of Funchal, and it is a return to a tradition and is more accessible to the population”.
