Impressions: Summer Celebration

While walking through Paris I came across this party and it fascinated me. all over Place de la Concorde they were celebrating the summer with several tables where they ate and all were wearing white. I was intrigued and asked them and they said (as far as I understood) that they meet once a year all over France exactly like that. Apparently, local authorities are not a fan which is why they keep it quite spontaneous and decide the place only a day or so before. Such, joi de vivre is amazing and I love it!
