Celebrate....Come on!

Oliveri is a pretty town. It is surrounded on three sides by mountains and the other side borders the Tyrrhenian Sea. Just a delightful vacation spot until the big feste of the summer. Then it becomes a mecca for vendors selling just about anything you can imagine. This year marks the worst of the worst. Almost every major through way is lined with these vendors. I hope the town is making some money off them. One lane of the beach road has been blocked to accommodate their stalls. The soccer field has booths in three rows. They are to be here through the middle of August. For me it blocks access to the beach. Some of the stall owners sleep in their cars or on the beach. I don't see any toilet or wash facilities so this is also a problem. I might be in the minority but I don't think this is a good thing for this town. Especially for an extended length of time. Here are some photos of the booths and items they are selling.




How about a few more......

Add to this the games of chance and the carnival rides....

Did something catch your fancy? I know it was the *water pipe*---or that lounge chair?

Padre Pio at one stand and The Butcher of La Cabana at another. Either irony or complete ignorance of history.
