Meetup Description: PARIS CARNIVAL...SUNDAY 22 FEBRUARY

Each February people parade through the streets of Paris dressed in a fascinating array of costumes based around a given Carnaval theme.

This year's theme is La Carnaval Cosmique, Astronautes et Extra-Terrestres (Space, Astronauts and Ex- terrestrials) so the costumes should be interesting.

This parade starts at Rue Le Vau at 3pm, and ends around 7pm at the Hotel de Ville (see link below for a list of all parade locations).

Where: We'll meet at La Gentilhommiere Cafe...it's close to Saint Michel metro in the 6eme

When: 3pm for drinks and a late lunch if you'd like to eat.

At 4.30pm to 5.00pm we'll head to the Rue de Rivoli to watch the parade pass by.

The parade is expected to reach Hotel de Ville at around 7.00pm so should we lose each other in the crowd we'll head back to finish the evening off at La Gentilhommiere at around 8pm.
