Something else for the weekend

A bit of an overspill this weekend as I have forgotten several important events!

The Salon de la Photo
This weekend sees the first important photography event of the season, a large-scale exhibition at the Paris Expo in the Porte de Versailles. Divided between art and technology, it covers everything the photography fan could want or need.

Best of all, visit this link for a free entrance pass!

Animal Expo
Another exhibition, but this time a lot more kitsch! Held at the Parc Floral - always worth a visit at weekends - it is celebrating its 20th edition in the company of over 20,000 animals. So what makes it kitsch? The 'best of breed' cat show is a riot of carefully groomed moggies, but for the non-cat lovers you'll also be able to see
skating and singing dogs!

Portes d'Or
On many weekends across the year, the artists of different districts of Paris open the doors of their studios to curious visitors. This weekend it is the artists of the Goutte d'Or, between Barbes and Montmartre, who will be showing off their creations - and their courtyards and apartments!

With the Vendanges de Montmartre also taking place this weekend, it will be a good opportunity to take in both events.

Les Puces du Design
Fan of twentieth century design? For its 25th edition, the biggest design 'flea market' in Paris moves away from the Bassin de la Villette to take up residence in Bercy Village.

If I have forgotten anything else, don't forget to add the event in the comments below!
