Jack takes four boys around a fair, encountering troubles when he buys them balloons, food, and in trying some of the contests, such as the throw a ball at bottles, or swing a sledge hammer to ring a bell, etc. He meets up with most of his usual nemeses. He encounters an unusual act of trapeze artists who seem to spend more time singing than swinging. He even volunteers to go face to face with a lion. Great laughs throughout. Written by FlushingCaps
