If you have wandered near the Louvre or Jardin des Tuileries lately, you will notice an exciting addition on the rue du Rivoli wing, and a rather large one at that! La Fête Foraine is the temporary summer carnival implanted by le mairie of Paris for those looking for an entertaining night out with the kids.
With over 60 attractions, this fête includes a Ferris wheel, climbing wall, trampolines, merry-go-rounds, games, and sweets like cotton candy, crêpes, gaufres (waffles), beignets, churros (one of the only times you will find these on the streets of Paris!), guimauves (marshmallows), and more. For those more daring, there are crazy is an insane ”zipper” ride — don’t eat before — and other wild rides for those who like bungy-jumping from bridges or diving out of airplanes or cliffs.
It is free to go walk through all the attractions, but costs about 2-3€ for each ride. This exciting family event, or even a fun evening for a romantic couple, will be up until August 19!
