Busy weekend for gastronomes parisiennes!

Festivities are on till 9PM at Bercy Village ,Cour St. Emilion. The championship of the best oyster opener(ecailler) will start at 3:00PM.
Then there is the annual Fete Des Vendages that has already started in Montmartre with the theme of islands, spices and bananas. There are food and wine kiosks around Sacre Coeur from all areas of France and their department of Dom-Tom, which incorporates French territories outside of France. These are mostly islands all over the world except for Guyane. Visites of the Clos de Montmartre will be held of course.
The big parade starts at saturday at 3PM and there are too many activites to list here. That night there will be a dances, music and a big display of fireworks. Festivities continue through Sunday. .
Paris is not only for lovers, but there are always these food fetes that I adore!
Hi Deluca, was there in the front row under the drizzling rain, but enjoyed every minute of the the concours. My favorite oyster was Breton, from Cancale. Incredible clean iodine and sea flavour from start to finish!
Would have loved to come up to say hello, but did not hear any other anglo accent but my own!
