Festival Del Pueblo in Burgess Park, a week at the Edinburgh Fringe and three football Stadiums to visit in a week!

I have posted some photos of the brilliant Festival Del Pueblo, the largest South American Festival in the Uk which took place in Camberwell yesterday on an absolutely scorching hot day, 30+ degrees centigrade!! It was loud , colourful and entertaining and Sandra, Paul, Althea and i sampled a few of the very strong Margaritas on offer and some of the food from over 100 stalls.! (more pics on my Facebook!)
Tomorrow I am off to Edinburgh for a week to see my mum and dad as well as take in a little bit of the Edinburgh Fringe, a more leisurely look unlike in my early days of trying to see as much as quickly as possible, anything upto 8 shows a day!!
The BBC News said yesterday that for someone to sit through every Fringe show this year from start to finish would take 6 years!!!

In the next week I also plan to visit 3 football stadia starting tomorrow with a visit to Arsenal's Emirates Stadium for a Fans Day to watch the first team train and visit the Arsenal Museum.
On Saturday it is off to Easter Road with dad and my nephew Kevin to see Hibs first home game of the season against newly promotes Gretna!

And finally the next Wednesday of to Craven Cottage to see Fulham's first home game of the season against Bolton Wanderers! A friend has given me a couple of free tickets!

Tonight Hibs play Hearts at Tynecastle in the opeing match of the season.! As Virgin TV now have Setanta I will be watching nervously tonight!!!

What a shame the Carnival ended so badly with gangs of kids causing loads of trouble. Shame.

Yes it is a shame.

I know there was trouble on the Saturday night after the Vibrations Concert but did not know that ther was trouble on Sunday.

Clearly youth gangs do congrigate later in the day and we really have to focus on better management of the tail end of events as that is where the aggrivation usually starts after a really positive family and community day!!
Thanks for the comment!
