Tavistock Celebrates Its Goose Fair
11:30am 8th October 2014
Tavistock is celebrating its Goose Fair.
Thousands are expected descend for the annual event.
It dates back to the 12th century where farmers sold their geese to be fattened up for Christmas.
Now it is everything from cattle shows to street stalls.
Ken Sedgmen helps organise it, he said: "When the weather is really nice we get around 25,000 people during the day.
"The fair is really, really buzzing, there are loads of people, there are lots of things to see and do and it's just a really lovely day out.
"They call it the goose fair because all the farmers would bring the geese in to the fair to be sold off so people could fatten them up for their Christmas meals, we still get some geese here now, people do still ask about the geese, but there's not so many around now."11:30am 8th October 2014
