Historical Description[]

The Frost Fairs took place in England when the River Thames would freeze during the Little Ice Age, which occurred between 1350-1850 CE. The Thames froze nearly two dozen times over these years. When the ice was thick enough to bear weight, people would construct tents to sell souvenirs, drinks, and even roast ox. During the Frost Fair of 1739, an entire section of ice cracked under the weight of the celebration, swallowing tents and people under the frozen river. The end of the Little Ice Age and a more freely flowing river - thanks to the demolition of the old London Bridge in 1831 - will keep the Fairs as celebrations of long ago.
