Winter Games


Right in front of the town hall in the center of Paris, they have installed a bunch of bobsleigh tracks for kids. Huge success!

  1. Hey, cool, I was exactly there just a week ago! I wish I had a kid so that I had an excuse to ride one of the sleighs! :)

    I also took a few photos of the slide, but yours is much better!

  3. This is kind of like Paris Plage(beach), but only in the winter. I agree...I wish I could have an excuse to take a ride. Looks like fun!

  4. I think I would even enjoy it myself :))
    Paris's initiatives are fun, this is a great complement to the Paris Plage in the summer. Cool!

  5. Why is everyone talking about excuses...do they not allow adults to ride...? I would be the first one saying "get out of my way kid...!:)"

  9. These kind of winter games are fun for old and young alike! I can see there are more winter activities happening in Paris than here in Toronto. We have no snow whatsoever (not that I'm complaining).

  14. What a great idea! I didn't see that when I was there, I wonder if I missed it or if this is new?

  17. Vous êtes chanceux à Paris, parce qu'à Montréal et à Québec, c'est la flotte! La fêtes des neiges de Montréal a été annulée (la pluie ça ne se fête pas...) et la compétition internationale de sculpture sur neige à Québec dans le cadre du carnaval a été annulée. (un Mexicain a été blessé quand sa sculpture lui est tombé dessus...)

    Je m'ennuie de la glisse

  18. I took a picture of the same thing, when I was there on Christmas Day! The kids looked like they were having the best time!

  19. Rodney: I'm sure it is temporary. In the Summer they have Paris Plage, there. Eric took a couple of pictures of that last year. With a little luck, he'll do it again :)
