León - Subtiaba’s sawdust carpets - 3

Third and final upload of pictures in the mini-series of the sawdust carpets in Subtiaba, León.
In Subtiaba, a suburb of León, every year on Easter Saturday colourful sawdust carpets are made in the street.

In response to my previous photos, some TE members asked what happens if there is a lot of wind.
Possible when choosing the long street with the sawdust carpets the usual wind direction was taken into account … I don’t know. But as far as I remember, the sawdust was not dry. Not dry like we normally imagine sawdust is. I suppose this was because the paint.
I didn’t go back the next day but if I remember well these carpets remain only the day of production.
