My grown kids visited us summer.  This morning they flew back to France and as I write this, they are still in the air.  But this reminded me that I forgot to post this blog about the festival in St. Martin de Crau.

After the parade, it was time to check out the village.  There were lots of stands selling the usual things that you would find on market day.  But there was more food and other special exhibits.DSC01436 DSC01418 DSC01433These men were part of a train club.  They built the trains and the tracks.  It cost 1 euro to ride the circuit 3 times.  I don’t know if the children or their parents had a better time.

Next we stopped to see the miniature (but big) boats.  DSC01445DSC01440 DSC01441 DSC01447 DSC01451This man on the right is the one who built all these boats.  Bravo Monsieur!!

Of course you can buy food and toys at a French street fair.  I only took a few photos.DSC01480 DSC01479 DSC01472 DSC01471

My favorite stand was selling this cool table.DSC01474
