With no less than 75 attractions, the October Fun Fair occupies 4 squares in Ostend: the Wapenplein, the Groentenmarkt, the Mijnplein and the Sint Petrus & Paulusplein. On Halloween, the fun fair offers many extra surprises.
A number of measures will be in place this year to ensure that everything runs in a corona-proof manner. Face masks must be worn at all fairground attractions, a circulation plan will be implemented on the squares with a limited number of entrances and exits and the maximum number of persons permitted on each square is restricted to 400. Furthermore, disinfectant hand gel will be available at every attraction and all persons manning a stand will be required to wear protective equipment.
The opening hours will be adapted to ensure an even distribution of visitors. The fair will be open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 PM to 7:30 PM, on Wednesdays from 2 PM to 7:30 PM, on Fridays from 4 PM to 10 PM, on Saturdays from 2 PM to 11 PM and on Sundays from 2 PM to 7:30 PM. The attractions will remain open until at least 9 PM on Monday to Thursday during the autumn school holidays.
