Paris Plage

Children play in a mist station set up on the banks of the River Seine during the eighth annual Paris Plage on July 20.

Paris Plage, which means "Paris Beach" in English, gives Parisian residents and tourists the opportunity to relax, as if they were at the beach. The attraction will remain open until Aug. 20.
