Fair-weather Fair – Fête Foraine qu’on aime
Oh the fair, that summer event that we always waited for as kids, with sheer anticipation and excitement. The smell of fried dough and ice-cream cones, the sound of children shrieking with delight as they are hurled around by those mechanical things (or with fatigue as they scream to be let out of the stroller); the sight of bright lights and loud colors…
Do you miss being a kid? Or do you hate the fair? Either way, if you’re in Paris, you can go to the Fair! Besides, you should at least go to ride on the fabulous ferris wheel. If you get on at 10pm, 11pm or midnight you’ll get to see the Eiffel Tower sparkle!
It’s a view worth making the trip to see. All of Paris lies below you, lovely and glittery like only Paris can be.
