6 July – 1 September 2019
It’s summertime in Paris, but if you can’t get to the beach, in the French capital, the beach comes to you. Along the banks of the Seine, 5,000 tonnes of sand hauled in for the occasion give the waterways a seaside resort feel complete with palm trees, parasols, and deckchairs. The family-friendly celebration includes water sports, exhibitions, and of course, ice-cream kiosks. For a taste of Parisian summer living, head over to Parc Rives de Seine and the La Villette canal basin.
