In 2008, the Eiffel Tower was lit each evening in a spectacular blue to mark
the French tenure of the rotating Presidency of the European Union.

 



Children riding the carousel on the Champ de Mars. This is still the original
hand-cranked model, amusing kids for nearly a hundred years.



In summer, the roads along the Seine are closed to traffic and opened to
city-bound beach-goers for "Paris Plage".
