Clowns and fire breathers at the Ipswich Fun Day in 1983
PUBLISHED: 07:30 01 January 2019
We kick off 2019 with a step back in time - to 1983 when fire breathers, clowns and would-be athletes were having fun in Hollywells Park.
Ipswich Fun Day is immortalised in these photos showing bands, performers and fun-loving children.
There was a kids’ race, clowns to entertain the crowds and fire breathers that left visitors mesmerised by their talents.
The Ipswich Carnival Queen and Princess were in attendance, giving people the chance to win a stereo radio cassette recorder from The Evening Star.
Were you one of those at this event? It was a key date in the Ipswich diary back then.
