Madame Eiffel Tower Celebrates 130 Years

Image of Eiffel Tower, Invalides in background, 130 years

Dear Paris Friends, salutationWhen I heard the Eiffel Tower would be lit in pink at 8:20 pm on an October evening it was pouring rain. I went home where it was drier. By the following, clear and not a-cloud-in-the-sky evening, the pink had turned to a yellow copper and now read “130 ans”. In May 2019, the Eiffel Tower turned 130 years old and the birthday celebration continues.

To celebrate this event, an interactive Fall Event is underway at the Eiffel Tower until the end of November on the esplanade, under a dome covering about 300 m2, is FREE and open to everyone. Visitors walk over screens on the ground that reproduce the image of the girders …. which feels likes walking over nothing, experience the monument’s wind resistance and become painters of the Eiffel Tower. The exhibit is open from 10 am to 10 pm. Enjoy!

When I heard the Eiffel Tower would be lit in pink at 8:20 pm on an October evening it was pouring rain. By the following day, viewed from the lights seen from the Trocadero plaza, the pink had turned to a yellow copper and now read “130 years”. In May 2019, the Eiffel Tower turned 130; however, why not celebrate the birthday all year long.
