New York Goes Vintage French in July

New York is feeling very French this month, we hear. Fête Paradiso, the world's first festival of vintage French carnival rides and carousels is making its American debut July 13-14 (Bastille Day weekend). The event will be held on Governors Island and will include an array of attractions from the late 19th and early 20th centuries (think carousels, flying swings and a pipe organ). 

Other attractions include a bicycle carousel from the late 19th century, an early 20th-century Music-Hall Ball Guzzler, a carnival game that features life-size caricatures of Josephine Baker, Maurice Chevalier, Charlie Chaplin, the Fratellini brothers and others.

To eat? A beer garden has popped up, along with Le Gamin at Fête Paradiso, which will serve food reminiscent of a French carnival.
