La Sommeliere Wine and Sake Shop Stand!

For quite some time now citizens of Shizuoka City have taken over the events held to commemorate the sistership between their city and Cannes in Southern France.
The main attractions are held during the month of May to coincide with the Cinema Festival in Cannes!
One of these is the Tricolor Festival held mainly in Gofuku Cho, Shichiken Cho and Aoba Park Streets.
This year it is organized with all kinds of stands on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th from 13:00 and 18:00.
Let me show some examples (there are just too many, and you will have to discover the others!):
