Enjoy the carefree exhilaration of life on the canal
Published on 9 August 2016 in Entertainment
Immerse yourself in the true spirit of Paris, a city of dance halls and dances, fun, games and endless conversations. Summer Canal is a fun, festive event that invites you to rediscover the true spirit of friendship and leisure.
A state of mind
Snobby, cold, contemptuous and rude. That’s how Parisians are sometimes perceived. Here is an event that will dispel all those false, negative prejudices about the capital’s residents. From July 2 to August 21 the third edition of Summer Canal will take place. The location is the Ourcq Canal in northern Paris, about twenty minutes by subway from the Platine Hotel. During this period, the Ourcq between the Bassin de la Villette and the Parc de la Poudrerie becomes a temporary leisure port where you will find jousting, houseboat cruises, gourmet dinners, dances, festivals, exhibitions and all kinds of activities. The DNA of this great project is fun, fun, fun!
Entertainment for all
Would you like to try your hand at kayaking in the middle of Paris? You can rent a pedalo, dance to ballroom music or listen to hip hop with your feet in the sand before returning to your room at Platine Hotel, just minutes from the Eiffel Tower and Parc André Citroën. That’s part of the charm of Summer Canal. It transforms a summer stay in Paris with a chance meeting, an introduction or a laugh shared with new friends. Whether you spend time dancing or taking part in a street art installation or whether you just wander here and there, you’re sure to have many surprising and refreshing moments at Summer Canal. A fun event close to many of the city’s popular attractions.
Discover a different Paris, enjoy a carefree summer.
