Future4fairgrounds had been kindly invited by the European Showmen's Union ESU/UFE to their 42nd EUROPEAN CONGRESS FAIR UNION (ESU/UFE) a conference that took place in Monte Carlo!
As guests we were asked to give a presentation on the aims of our group and to encourage further unity with our European colleagues, we spoke about World Fun Fair Month which takes place in September.
Day 1 in Monte Carlo was spent meeting other Showman from across Europe for lunch and then a walk around the city.
Drinks and a little gamble in the world famous Casino, followed by a lovely meal with around 50 other Showman, where Bernice and I were presented with World Kermis Month pins.
We then all went to see what can only be described as The Greatest Show on Earth.
