Carlsbad Village Fair

5-3-09
Our little village had its annual „Carlsbad Village Fair“.
Our city fathers claim that it is the largest one day fair in the world. It is large. Grant Street is closed and so are some side streets, to make room for 900 vendors.
The merchants on those streets have an advantage, they can stay open. The other stores in the village suffer.
Traffic and parking are a big headache. We drove to a shopping center near our home and took a free shuttle bus to the village.
Since we had a Marine Layer (no sun) over Carlsbad, it was just the right temperature for walking.
My sole purchase was a bag of kettle pop corn. Doreen bought a lawn ornament for somebody.
