Jour de fête funfair at the Grand Palais, Paris

The "Jours de fête" is a beautiful giant circus and funfair which takes place in the nave of the Grand Palais.

This exceptional event features circus performers, free concerts and all the traditional fairground attractions, including dodgems, merry-go-rounds, candyfloss and more - the 30m high ferris wheel dates back to 1900.

Once night falls, the nave's glass roof (the biggest in Europe) provides a magical view of the city, while the splendour of coloured lights fills the inside of Grand Palais.
