The Hoppings in Newcastle has conquered the bad weather and is open.
The event was due to begin on Friday but was cancelled after a deluge of rain turned the city's Town Moor into a mudbath.
Massive earthmovers have moved in to prepare the site for visitors.
David Wilson, Vice Chairman of the Freemen of Newcastle explained: "We have been carrying out regular full site inspections to assess the gravity of the situation.
"We brought in massive machines to even out the surface.
"Despite the extra investment we have made in drainage for the Town Moor this year, the weather managed to defeat us for a short while, but after a fantastic effort from all on the site we are back and The Hoppings will now be opening on Sunday 24 June.
"Safety and the enjoyment of the public were our most important priorities and we feel we are now able to open the fair meeting both of those concerns. We are very grateful for the fantastic way that the media has enabled us to keep the public informed of the status of the event on a frequent basis.
It is only the second time in 130 years The Hoppings, which is Europe's biggest travelling funfair, has been moved due to adverse weather conditions.
Organisers said to bring your wellies.
