Chapter Ten of the Boomtown chronicles finds a world changed far from the dream of Nickolas Boom, a grand city where once only a small village stood, a world of bright lights and dizzying heights, where distraction is the main attraction and the people are divided by the passage of time...Read more…
Our story begins with our intrepid explorer Nickolas Boom discovering Gold in them thar hills and founding a small township and port that would in years to come be named after him and known to all the world as Boomtown, site of the now legendary Boomtown Fair. But when it began it was simply an annual gathering of this small community to celebrate the good fortunes of another year, Mr Boom would lay on a fabulous spread and there would be music and dancing long into the night.
It was here in Chapter One of our tale that the circus first came to town, rumbling down the hillside at dusk one late summer's evening came an enormous caravan train, at its head a swarthy moustachioed man sat a top an enormous elephant, The Gypsy King! The locals were afraid of this strange and awesome site until Boom himself went out to meet the strangers.
This was the beginning of the Fair proper, as shortly there after the caravan train was unloaded and a veritable citadel of twinkling medways and rippling canvas unfurled to create a bizarre other world full of exotic creatures and beings, the likes of which had never been seen before!
And so each year would they return with wonders and spectacles more bedazzling and beautiful than before and the annual gathering that is now known across the world as Boomtown Fair was born!
