The fall is here and that means the grapes are ready for picking, which also means it is time for Les Fetes des Vendanges at Montmarte. If you have not participated in this annual event, you really need to go! After all my years of living in Paris, last year was my first time for going to this largely celebrated affair, and now, I am sorry that I have missed many years of fun and celebration. So, don't miss out! The parade is the highlight of the fete, so check out the times on the website.
All regions of France are represented ..., so lots of entertainment, food demonstrations, wine flows freely, along with other delicious tastes and smells of the season. Starting today and thru the weekend, plan your time to include this fete des fetes!
On Saturday night, Oct. 9, in front of Sacré-Coeur, there will be Grand Feu d'Artifice en musique, some fantastic fireworks and music, by Jacques Couturier Organisation.
