Montbrun Bocage Automne Foire Part I

This last Sunday we took another one of our weekend trips. One of the big advantages of living here in southwest France is the fact that you can drive less than one hour, and you are in another part of France that is so different from where you live.

As we arrived at the fair this was the first seller that we noticed. Of course the sign pulled us into the building. Once inside the building there was only a toilet stool. Otherwise a place to flush your money. The man with his back to us was dressed as a Wall Street broker.

Within five minutes this woman showed up and agreed to be photographed only if we promised to go the the salle des fête where she was entertaining. As with all of the people involved in the event, we found it to be a real treat to visit the salle and see the fair from that point. I will post more from that area of the fair on another post.

When we arrived at the salle des fête she was clearing tables and entertaining the crowd. As with most of the weekend fairs that are held all over France, everyone was enjoying the show and the food.

The meals were being served in the open air, and although it threatened rain all day, it did not dampen the spirits of the crowd.

This is the only website that I was able to find for the town. I will be posting more photos later this week.
