Car boot success!

MORE THAN 40 vehicles and 1,200 people attended the first car boot sale at the Parque das Cidades, the Algarve Stadium, on Sunday.

“We anticipate around 100 cars and 2,000 visitors for the next car boot sale or feira sobre rodas, which is due to take place at the same venue on June 1,” said the organiser, Mark Walder.

The first 100 sellers will receive goodie bags with free coffee and vouchers and because June 1 is also International Children’s day, children’s charities, scouts, entertainers and other organisations will be at the fair to celebrate the day.

To take a vehicle and sell at the fair, residents will have to register either online before the date or at the site on the day. Visitors, associations and entertainers can enter the fair free of charge.

Car boot sales will take place every first and third Sunday of each month and are open between 8am and 2pm.
