The Sardine Festival ...

By Chinga
The Theme: Wall art from Algarve - Portugal anticipating the Sardine Festival 2nd to 6th of August!
If you are anywhere in Algarve on that date, donít miss the Great Sardine Festival in Portimao! This is a bubbly town recognised as the Sardine Capital of the Algarve! This event is well attended by Portuguese and tourists alike, organised by the local council. Apart from sardines there will be other Portuguese culinary delights and plenty of good wine and beer! There will also be music concerts & fireworks. The latter on the last day. The event takes place in the beautiful Riverside/Quayside from 6PM with the concerts starting at 10PM. Me? I have to work no holiday in August... TongueTongueTongueTongueTongueTongue
Thank you to Jeffrey (Kojack) for gracing the Sunday images with a precious and coveted UA.

I am starting to like graffiti Isabel. The colours are lovely. I could paraphrase the song and say
"Now I have seen your art, I am a believer". Smile

Superb wall art, Isabel, and with sardines as you've never seen them before.
Nice to see the bigger picture and then the detail in the individual sardines.

A delightful way to depict the Sardine Festival - relishing the thought of fresh sardines, some lemon and a bottle of Sauvingon Blanc.

I've eaten sardines on the quayside there.
In fact, somewhere in the archives I have a picture of two men fishing off the harbour wall with their tackle bag hanging off the 'No Fishing' sign!
Great pictures today, Isabel.
