Fête de la Musique in Paris!

The Fête de la Musique is an annual event held in Paris since the 1980s, which now occurs throughout Europe, and recently happened in June. During this night, there is free music all throughout the streets of the participating cities. The kinds of music ranged from huge concerts by famous singers and bands on "stages" throughout Paris, to small jazz groups playing in front of brasseries, to one guy on his guitar singing and playing songs outside the hip Centre Pompidou art museum.

We had a great time, starting in Cergy right by ESSEC after some MBA appointments on campus, then heading into Paris and ending up over in Le Marais area, where people had put huge speakers in their windows and were playing music from their Mac laptops, which created a sort of dance floor below in the streets!

Of course food vendors were out for hungry people - the hit of the evening seemed to be the "New York City" style hot dogs sold from a small window facing a busy street!
