Kermesse - Tiger on my Table

The annual Kermesse in aid of charity was held yesterday in the circus tent in Fontvieille.  This is the 44th year of the year of this event which has been held annually in Monaco since 1970 when it was created by the British Association of Monaco (BAM), St. Paul’s Church and the Saint Vincent de Paul charity. Nowadays others are involved in the organization including the Reform Church of Monaco, the Spanish Community, and the Greek Orthodox parish.

There were over 25 stalls including two book stalls (one English and one French), lots of clothes stalls, a toy stall, an antique stall, a flower stall, a tombola stand and loads of Christmas food for sale.

Everyone has the best fun meeting up with old friends, however this lady is making is quite clear she has no intention of having a conversation with a tiger.

I haven't heard that word, "Kermesse,"in decades! That was an annual event in a small Wisconsin town where I was born. Altho we moved elsewhere when I was in elementary school, I still recall the sound of the word and the activity around the celebration. This event looks well attended!
