Esquimalt's Buccaneer Days fair is coming this weekend.

Just make sure you've completed your will before riding the zipper. Judging by the noise that thing makes, half the frights are caused by the anticipating of a bolt snapping.

When I was about 13 I rode the zipper and found it absolutely terrifying. Many years passed before I screwed up the courage to ride it again but finally at 19, I tried again, confident that I was just a frightened kid the first time. Nope, same thing-heart-stopping terror.

I'm sure if I were to ride it today as a middle-aged man all I would think about are my kids, and how much I'll miss them.

No thanks.

The zipper is the only reason to go to the fair, man!

My cousin won the Bucaneer Queen beauty pagent back in the 80s - you know, when beauty pagents were still cool.

Oops. The event's official website still states the midway opens today, but event organizers sent out a little Facebook message on the 5th saying the midway wouldn't open until Friday at 3PM.

 

There's going to be a lot of unhappy people this afternoon.
