Billboards and a neon sign of Cultural events in Tomar

Tomar isn’t just an historical town. It’s also a cultural city that organizes inspirational events every year, most of them in summer or early autumn. The following three photos illustrate what I mean, as they refer to a road billboard of the Festival of the Human Statues (Festival de Estátuas Vivas), a billboard of “A day in the village” (Um dia na Aldeia), which was a 19th century market organized on the 31st of October 2010, and a neon sign at night at the main entrance of the Santa Iria Showgrounds (Feira de Santa Iria), organized annually, a tradition which I believe started in medieval times.
