Fête des Tuileries

Every summer the Tuileries Gardens hosts a carnival on their grounds. When we were here two summers ago we loved going there, and when we got here last August we were looking forward to going back but they had just shut it down, so we're glad we were able to make it before leaving Paris next week.

The main attraction for us oldies was the Ferris wheel, or as Nicolás says, the Perris wheel, from where many of the pictures below were taken. For the kids, without a doubt, it was the floating balls.

On the way back home we made a quick stop before Napoleon's statue at the top of the Vendôme column.
