Festival of Cergy's associations, in Cergy, France. Saturday 8 September 2012.
Although, this fest is held on the first Saturday of September each year, this year this was scheduled on the 2nd Saturday of this month. Maybe to let schools begin first.

It was a wonderful day. The sun was shining, a good condition for people to visit the fest.
Every year there are a lot of organizations that participate in this event. This year wasn't an exception (more than 300 organizations). Organizations (non-profit), in many fields of activity and for every ages, were there.

Arrived at 9 o'clock, my booth were in the education and training zone. This is the place where the visitors seeking for cerebral activities visit first. There are other zones, for sports, dance, health, solidarity and so on.

The decorations took less time than usual, i prepared thing well, before going there.

I received as each year a lot of visitors. This year there were even more than other years. I think we'll get many events in my NPO, this year.

In this kind of event, one wait for a lot of discussion and questions. Why do you use this system? Why it's better to use FOSS. Is it free? Why are there many Linux distributions? Etc, etc. At the end of the day you feel your mouth dry and your tongue is swollen. But with all this tiredness, you feel happy to express your ideas, and listen to other points of view. 

Some visitors were really interested in Fedora. A young man at the university of Cergy told me that Fedora is the best Linux distribution. I was very happy to hear this.

The idea behind inviting organizations to this fest, is to let people meet and exchange opinions. One can even find partner(s), for future events and meetings. I can say that i had many positive and interesting contacts.

All finished at 18 o'clock. It was a happy end of a real tired day.
