The history of Frances biggest and most popular funfair stretches all the way back to the year 957 AD when the Frankish King Lothaire created the first such event. Similarities with the original fair may be few and far between but its character and customs are rich in old Parisian charm and taste. This more modern version has been a great success since the 1960s, its 350 different attractions, rides and games extending over 25 hectares of the Reuilly fields. Those with a sweet tooth could also do a lot worse than go along to enjoy the delights of the 145 sweet makers. Very tasty.
