Booths In The 2017 Gilroy Garlic Festival Christmas Hill Park Gilroy, California

A booth (market stall) is a typically immobile, temporary structure erected by merchants to display and shelter their merchandise in a street market or other setting. Stalls are easily erected, taken down or simply moved on wheels. The same type of stall is also used as a display area at fairs and conventions. Some commercial marketplaces, including market squares or flea markets, may erect (or allow merchants to erect) more permanent stalls. [paraphrased from wikipedia]
