Answer : A visit to a fair is always very interesting for me. I go to the fair with my parents and friends. The best part of a fair is the rides. When I go to a fair, my friends and I can’t decide what to do first. There are so many rides, like hot air balloon rides, jumping house where we can jump very high, and my favourite merry-go-round is the last ride we sit on. The fair ground is filled with hundreds of shops selling various products like toys, sweets, clothes to the people who gathered to visit the fair.
