"for example the Monchique sausage festival has a big billboard publicising it at the top of MFA road"

Sausages are a big thing in Portugal, in a recent survey Portuguese Sausages were voted 4th best in Europe, UK came in 6th with German sausages coming last because they are wurst  Wink

I was thinking whether there is some kind of law preventing local attractions and places like the karting, for example, putting up small posters about themselves in bars that tourists use? It wouldn't take much effort at the start of the season.

I know the karting has a dirty great sign near the fire station, but people walk past those things. When sitting in bar as one does, attention falls on the posters advertising community and social events.

The NYE event was better publicised last time than before, as they were able to confirm the headline performer early in November for a change.

I tried to send an email to the karting place in the Marina over a week ago to see what package they could do for a group of us and had no reply.

I also emailed the other karting track in Almancil too who came back to me, but seemed a bit pricey with the travel costs added too.

James, You could also try getting in touch through Facebook if you are on there. The track is currently only open from Friday through Monday (out of season) and I do know that the owners are busy with the bowling alley. They are normally quite good at getting info back to people, as is the manager, Sandy.

Thanks have tried dropping them a message on there.

Been to Albufeira over a dozen times and never made it down to the marina so would be nice to head down there and take a look.

The notices around the marina (and to be fair there are a few) tell that the karting is currently open 12 - 5 Fridays to Mondays.

There was a sign up next door to Tasca on the marina for a new Irish bar - any sign of that?

Bowling still not open, no-one working on Friday afternoon and no information visible.  Picture taken around 530pm
