Fête du Quatorze Juillet

Jump to last reply

Vedettes de Paris finally posted the link to get tickets online and I finally was able to get my tickets for the fireworks cruise! The price has gone up a wee bit this year -- 39 Euro for the cruise, show, and a glass of champagne (or soda for those who don't imbibe).

I think this may be the first year they are trying to do this entirely on-line, so they haven't worked out all the kinks. Need a little patience and hitting the "back" button (as opposed to refresh) to deal with the secure online payment part of the ticketing process.

Also, it is not yet translated into English, even though there's a button to click for English. Even though I'm pretty good in French, I like the security of confirming that my understanding of all the rules is correct. So I used a second window with google translate. It helped me understand the statements that after you set up an account, give them an email address, and pay, they send you a confirmation with the tickets; followed by a second email later that gives you the passes that allow you to pass from the the bridge down onto the quai, which is closed off and there's no access unless you have this pass.

Anyway, passing this information on -- this will be my 4th time, and I'm really looking forward to it!
