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.

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.

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history a few decades ago with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. In 1990 for American Airlines I began working as a flight attendant, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines after 20 years. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on Colleensparis.com - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/colleensparis and I am active in Toastmasters. Enjoy!
