|Fantastic Fire Eating at Palais de Tokyo (photo by Mr. T, aka collard greens)|
Attention all Photographers and Lovers of Fire!
As Mr. T and I both love to take photos, we were invited by the PhotoMeetup of Paris to the Palais de Tokyo for a challenging evening of photo opps at the 7th annual "Fire Eaters Birthday Party". This birthday celebration occurs every year at the end of January in the waterless fountains of the Palais. This is a very large party that gathers around the Arts of poī, .. with lots of fire eaters, jugglers, interesting people from all over, music, and a certain type of tribal magic. This is THE place known all across Europe to go in order to meet the fire scene of France. The French Burn Crew has a 6 year successful history of making this a welcoming event.
The "Fire Eaters" festivities usually occur every Saturday night, beginning around 9pm and ending with the last metro ride of the evening, usually around 2am. Every now and then, nobody will show up, so check the forum before you arrange an evening around this event.
Word of Caution - although it is mainly attended by good fire people, you are still on the streets of Paris, so take care of your belongings.
See you there!
