Fête des Tuileries
During summer, there’s a fun fair to be found at the Tuileries Garden (Jardin des Tuileries) in Paris! It usually takes place from the end of June until somewhere into the last week of August.
When I was in Paris with my family last July, we shortly stopped here and had some fun looking at the screeching and shrieking people in the upside-down-swingy-thingy (very technical term, bien sûr). There’s always one or two cringed little faces that look like they’re going to puke all over the place in any second.
We didn’t go on any rides, since ticket prices at these kinds of fairs are never reasonable, but I had a couple of minutes to take a few photos. I kind of wanted to ride the “Flume Ride”, but flume kind of sounds like phlegm so I wasn’t too convinced anyway. Also, these photos were just for fun, but I’d just like to point out the ticket guy’s sneaky silhouette in the fourth photo, I kind of like it!
Stay tuned for more posts about Paris soon! If you missed my first one about the Place de la Conorde, check it out here.

Nice shots. I like the carnival/ fairground shots too- they have a nostalgic appeal. Funny- the Flume ride reminds of a producer/musician in Australia who goes by the name of Flume. Quite popular. Regards Peet
I like the fourth photo – the dark clouds in contrast with the rainbow fence.
Thank you! 🙂
Great photos, Roselinde. They resemble some of the venues at Disney resorts.
