A 4th of July Picnic in Paris

4th of July
Fourth of July fell on a Thursday and since Parisians don’t exactly celebrate our Independence Day, I organized a celebratory picnic on Saturday at Jardin des Tuileries so we could enjoy views of the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay and the Eiffel Tower in the distance. Although our group of 20+ didn’t celebrate with traditional fireworks, burgers and hot dogs (the parks in Paris don’t allow grills), we did end up having a très American time with a game of American football and even got to drunkenly proudly wave our flag to cap the night after our nine-hour long celebration.

Next up – celebrating the blue, white and red at a Bastille Day picnic with fireworks!
