The seaside town of Scarborough on the east coast of England near York no longer has a Fair which most people visiting the town for a holiday think is not fair.

Years ago Scarborough attracted thousands of visitors every year and the fair was very popular there was even a place well loved by children called Mr Marvels Funpark now there is nothing.

The singers Simon & Garfunkel have heard about this and have had to change the lyrics of their song Scarborough Fair which now goes something like this:

"Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Don't bother, its no longer there.
Once there were thousands of holiday makers around.
Now it is silent, you don't here a sound"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
