Every July there’s a local tradition in Warrington where we live that has been around since the early 19th century, it called ‘Walking Day’ churches, schools and other groups take part in the walk and then there is a local funfair to attend afterwards.
I come from an area in Warrington that didn’t celebrate this tradition but Chris grew up with fond memories of walking day and going to the funfair afterwards, as we live closer to town now and Daisy’s school closes for the day Chris wanted to make it a part of hers and Jake’s childhood too.
We didn’t attend the walk itself as Daisy and Jake are too little at the moment but we did go to the funfair once Daddy was home from work.
It will come as no surprise to regular readers that I’m always looking to save money and when Chris found that the funfair had a Facebook page and were offering printable money off coupons for the rides I was very excited.
Daisy and Jake had some pennies from Nanny and Grandad for the rides and we took drinks with us so all in all fun was had and at the fraction of the cost.
Of course we had the obligatory cone of chips and a bag of candy floss on the walk home, we also had a go on the ‘Hook A Dalmatian’, someone must have hooked all the ducks (sorry couldn’t resist) both children are extremely happy with the gigantic scented bouncy balls they both won.
We’ve had an absolutely lovely evening and it just goes to show you can find a coupon for anything if you look hard enough.
What’s the most unusual or unlikely coupon you have found ?
