The Bois de Boulogne (Woods of Boulogne) are known for providing a place to enjoy open spaces and greenery near Paris. From now until October 14, 2012, the Bois de Boulogne will also be the location of a very special fair called La Fête à Neu-Neu.
This fair is offering both adults and children one last chance to get out and enjoy the outdoors in a fun and exciting environment before the cooler temperatures of autumn arrive. Guests staying at the Hotel de la Tour Maubourg can take advantage of the remaining days of summer by checking out all of the rides and attractions of the fair.
More than 100 attractions have been set up at the fair, including a giant ferris wheel that gives a great panoramic view of Paris. The ferris wheel goes up 60 meters into the air, giving riders the chance to see the lakes of the woods as well as the Eiffel Tower and other Parisian sites. However, the fun does not end there — visitors can also amuse themselves with go-karts and many other exhilarating rides. For those who really crave thrills, a ride called Grand 8 – Taxi Driver speeds visitors through a 300-meter long journey.
Children will especially enjoy hopping into giant bubbles and taking them for a spin. Anyone who gets into these large spheres will feel like a giant hamster as they attempt to run on top of water while inside the bubble.
Of course, no fair is complete without the traditional food that everyone expects to see at these events, like candy apples and cotton candy. And even those who do not like rides can find something to enjoy at the fair, such as the fortune teller who reveals all the secrets that the future holds. There is something for everyone at the La Fête à Neu-Neu — thrill-seekers and children at heart should not miss it.
