Paris summer events to enjoy during your city break
Summer in the city of light is a fun filled extravaganza where a lighthearted atmosphere prevails as festivities and events take place.
July 14th is of course, Bastille Day and it's a national holiday that commemorates one of the most important events in French history. Paris is the place to be, and the celebrations at Place de la Bastille spread the length and breadth of the city. Take part in communal meals, parades, and displays that begin at first light and end with magnificent firework displays after dark - though the street parties continue well into the night.
From June 1st until August 31st, you can join in with all types of dance, from traditional Breton dance to salsa, tango, rock or capoeira at Danse en Seine, an exceptional carnival event on the banks of the famous River Seine.
The Tuileries Gardens is the beautiful location for the fabulous traditional fun fair, with wooden bumper cars and carousels dating back to 1900. Try your luck at Japanese billiards or fishing for ducks, or bring back childhood memories with cotton candy and toffee apples. Open through July and August, it's a great day out for all ages.
