Curitiba Brazil - Hippie Market on Sunday

The fair hippie in Curitiba, as was known at the start, became the Fair of Largo, or simply feirinha.
It happens every Sunday morning and became a meeting point curitibano, much visited by tourists from all parts of Brazil and the world.
The city of Curitiba in Brazil was famous for its innovative way of dealing with urban issues, especially public transport and occupation of the areas, preserving green areas through the creation of public parks.
The Fair is another example of the organization of the city.
After the 14:00 pm the fair ends and a few hours after not remains, no trace of the fair, and everything is clean.
The photos are of this last Sunday. I apologize for a problem in my lens, but I believe you can feel the atmosphere of the party.
I apologize for my Google English too...!





The first picture was taken from the top of the staircase that appears red in the background.
It is a market for old cars too.































































































































In Curitiba is time for the International Theatre Festival.



Curitba is a city flagged in Portuguese and English

Nice photo tour of the hippie market in Curitiba. Really enjoyed it, and great to see that the attractive heritage buildings are so well kept.

Curitiba is a perfect city in Brazil to do that. The climate is awesome, not really hot in the summer, so you can go on a walk even when it's sunny and you won't bother. Curitiba is the nearest major Brazilian city to me (240km), so I visit it sometimes. However, I've never been to this area on the pics, feirinha. Is it somewhere downtown?
