Description: Revel in the nostalgia of vintage French carousels and carnival rides. As the event's promoter's describe, "F?te Paradiso will transport adults and children to a charming Parisian street fair of a bygone era." Fantasies aside, you and the kidlets will enjoy carousels, flying swings, a pipe organ, and an original "bicycle carousel" which, back in its time, was created to encourage Parisiens to use a then-new mode of transport: the bicycle!
