It's been a little quiet on this here blog these past couple of weeks; the sun shines brightly outside and I've been working hard to be able to put ice cream on the table.
The oh so short summer is almost drawing to a close, les Frenchies are all begrudgingly back from their respective vacances and there's a chill in the air in the early morning. But, as all good things must, August is going out with a bang, with TWO very cool festivals on this weekend!
When my friend Anne sent me a link to this festival, thinking I may like it, I lost my bananas! The first festival of its kind in the city, Klin d'Oeil advertises they will have Kraft - Food - Music all wrapped up in some kind of Disneyland for us Jessica-Day-loving girls (and boys!). Ateliers by Paris' leading DIY doyennes, food by some very yummy food trucks and, if their website is anything to go by, music that will take you back to the vacance you just came from!
Organisined by the crew that previously brought the city Le Super Market, Klin d'Oeil looks to be more interactive and festive.
**And for those that don't know what 'Klin d'Oeil' means, it's French for wink ;)
Friday, Saturday, Sunday August 23 - 25
Trabendo, Parc du Villette,
Mexican Village @ Wanderlust
To be perfectly honest, Wanderlust has been quite hit and miss for me; sometimes its awesome, sometimes not so much at all.
But if the previous Mexican Village pictures are anything to go by this weekend's festivities are going to be a surefire hit. How could a Mexican fiesta not be? The perfect venue to stay outdoors in summer's fading sunshine.
