Activities for all
This event is aimed at adults as well as children. You can tell by the fact that it is possible to go on a cruise thanks to the river shuttles, between the Parc de la Villette and the Port de loisirs in Bobigny (93). By the way, they are available according to thematics. Some are musical, neo gourmet or artistic. It is even possible to take a yoga cruise, followed by a tasting of detox fruit juice. Bikes are also at the disposal of sportspeople who would like to rent one in order to ride along the canal de l’Ourcq. Salsa classes, guinguettes at the water’s edge and strolls commented in French and in English on the theme of street art are also programmed.

A festival as bucolic as rich culturally speaking, which will make the happiness of curious people this summer.
