J – The denizens of Montmartre are always celebrating something …
like Le Fete des Vendanges (Harvest Festival), for example. In October, a week-long festival celebrates, basically, the grape harvest in Le Montmartre. Yes, Montmartre has vineyards and makes wine. It’s a big deal here.
A whole week. Galas. Parties. Art. Concerts. Educational exhibits.Vineyard tours and wine tastings.
And, of course, The Parade.
A four hour parade !
Then, the Marche des Puces (Flea Market) the next Sunday …
About ten blocks of vendor tents with all kinds of cool stuff. Unfortunately, no room in my suitcase for some great bargains.
Antique theatrical lighting fixtures.
And, as usual after every event, the streets are cleaned. Ah, Paris.
