What distinguishes a makeshift / itinerant enclosure from a mere occupation of public space?

 

A makeshift enclosure is always intended for a specific amusement and normally involves the assembly of stages, structures, tents, with and without the sale of food products. The makeshift enclosure requires special instructions since the structures in question may endanger the safety of participants to the event (e.g. Rock in Rio, Music festivals, etc). 

 

Itinerant enclosures are those with a limited area, covered or not, where removable equipments for amusement are installed and which due to their construction characteristics, can be moved and installed, namely: travelling circuses, bullrings, amusement pavilions and other mechanical amusements.

Installation of the enclosure can be made on public or private spaces.
