ALMERIA residents have complained that some fairground rides did not have discounted prices on Children’s Night.
The official schedule for the fair in Almeria City specified that on Children’s Night, like every year, mechanical fairground rides would cost 50 per cent less.
This should be followed by anyone who wants to have a spot at the fairground.
However, according to comments on the local mayor’s Facebook page, this was not the case this year. Prices were lower, but many of the operators of the rides were not applying the 50 per cent discount.
Local Police, in charge of enforcing rules at the fair, say that they were not aware of the situation and received no complaints. The Culture and Festivities Department said that they were unaware if anyone had made an official complaint with the regional consumer department.
However, if enough proof is gathered, the council will fine the owners of rides who failed to offer 50 per cent discount.
