Fireworks At The Eiffel Tower

Was wondering if there will be fireworks at the Eiffel Tower on the night of July 14th as it is a holiday. That is the day that we arrive in Paris so will everything be closed such as restaurants, shops etc.

Yes, of course! 10:30 p.m is the approximate time, choreographed to music, over the Trocadero, followed by an Eiffel Tower light show. So it's best to be around that area so you get the whole "show" -- as crazy, crowded as it is. Wonderful fun!

Shops, for the most part are closed; restaurants and bars OPEN; museums OPEN. Getting your baguettes early is KEY, so hope you get in early enough for that. If not, scout around the airport before getting in a taxi or other transport to see if you can grab some pastry/baguette to tie you over until things open up again the next day.

Does the Eiffel Tower closed early on the night of July 13th? Ive tried to purchase advanced tickets online to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, but the latest offered is 8pm. How long would the wait be to get to the top of the tower at this time of night?

I believe it closes at 10 pm on that date and the last access is at 9 pm (usually it's open until 1 am or so). So if you only got 8 pm, well, that's all that is available. On the 14th, they close it even earlier, of course, I think at 8 pm with last access at 6 pm.
