London , United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 15, 2011 -- Once again, Paris Plages will be bringing a holiday atmosphere of family and soft sand to the capital this summer! Parisians and tourists can stroll along the riverbanks, comfortably settle into colourful deckchairs facing the Seine, enjoy a concert, watch a sporting event or sip the latest trendy cocktails in one of the many refreshment areas on the beach. The 2011 edition, as with previous years, reminds us that above all Paris Plages is a family event. For a month, water activities (pedalos, sailboats, rowing boats, etc.), outdoor activities (beach rugby, a swim in a floating poo!, etc.) and gentler activities (painting, reading, etc.) give holidaymakers plenty to choose from!
For those who dream of going on holiday without leaving the capital, or who wish to discover a new side to the city, Paris invites you to come and join the fun. Don't forget your sun glasses and sun cream!
Every summer the Seine riverbanks are transformed into seaside resort offering relaxation and sporting activites for free!
Every summer, two miles of the Seine (near the Pont Neuf) is turned into Paris Plage, a beach complete with white sand and sunbeds. It's free to play petanque and volleyball plus there's entertainment, from comedy to trip-hop.
A second stretch, along the Canal de l'Ourcq (75019/Metro Stalingrad), also draws crowds with yet more concerts, outdoor games and sand.
Just one word of warning - don't get carried away. You're not in Saint Tropez and Paris's waters are not fit for swimming in! According to project designer Jean-Christophe Choblet, the aim of this beach is lazing and strolling by the water. Bet you never thought you'd have to pack your bucket and spade for a weekend in Paris!
