Blackpool North Pier

Standard

Built in the 1860s, North Pier is the oldest and longest of Blackpool’s three piers, South, Central, and North.

All three Blackpool piers are fantastic relics of times gone by.

Today is the Fireworks Championships Finale when everyone will have their camera at the ready to take “ooh and aah” pics as the fireworks are discharged. The guys are busy setting up on North Pier.  It looks complicated and involved.

This one conjures up a song from 1967

So evocative of seaside life then and now

Carousel

 

Riding along on a carousel
Trying to catch up to you
Riding along on a carousel
Will I catch up to you

Horses chasing ’cause they’re racing
So near yet so far
On a carousel, on a carousel

Nearer, nearer by changing horses
Still so far away
People fighting for their places
Just get in the way

Soon you’ll leave and then I’ll lose you
Still we’re going round
On a carousel, on a carousel

Round and round and round and round and round
And round and round and round with you
Up, down, up, down, up, down too

As she leaves she drops the presents
That she won before
Pulling ducks out of the water
Got the highest score
Now’s my chance and I must take it
A case of do-or-die

On a carousel, on a carousel

Round and round and round and round and round
And round and round and round with you
Up, down, up, down, up, down too

Riding along on a carousel
Trying to catch up to you
Riding along on a carousel
Will I catch up to you

Now we take our ride together
No more chasing her
On a carousel, on a carousel
On a carousel, on a carousel
