Don't call it a desecration of the Sabbath - this is a celebration of shabbes the secular way. There is a festive atmosphere, people walk around, look at the beautiful hand-made items for sale, (jewelry, ceramics) sometimes buy as well, children have fun, people read about the history of the train station -(wish we had the old-fashioned trains back!!) - you can have a coffee, or a meal --all that is celebrating shabbes, in a secular way.
