    I went to it..
    Quite an enjoyable day as I recall.

    Went to it twice! Once with the cub scouts and once with my family. Remember queuing for ages to get on the "Coca Cola Rollercoaster"

    I remember getting a clout round the lug for being a wee $#@!e at this and not being allowed to go on the rollercoaster a second time as a result. I'd snatched my wee sister's helium balloon off her and deliberatley let it float away. The wee rat had bit me but she was "only three" and I was "old enough to know better" apparently.

    I can still see that inflatable Garfield disappeaing into the summer sky as my mother's hand smacked me upside the dome.
