Chestnuts adventure in Calabria. Part 1

1 November is a Holiday in Italy thats why we decided to make a three days weekend and go in Calabria to pick chestnuts in forest. We went to Camigliatello Silano. It's a small town in Sila moutains and it population is about 1000 persons.
 It was Sunday and as you think, what we found when we came - a Fest! It was Sagra of chestnuts and potatoes. Sagra is a small local fest dedicated to local food and drinks.
The central street was full of market stalls selling every local product and of course chestnuts, potatoes and mushrooms. 
Of course there was local cheese and salami:

This chees in hay we bought:
Cute market stall:
Cute decorations made from pumpkin:
Of course on every corner you can find roasted chestnuts:
Calabria is region in southern Italy, so no fest can be without trtaditional dance - tarantella.
