In the Paris snow, this carousel was a bright, noisy spot. In the late afternoon heading towards the carousel, it was an unexpected treat to see this magical blue and white wedding cake of a merry-go-round in full operation. The children were bundled and all had rosy cheeks from the cold, none seeming to mind.

I learned that the Mairie de Paris offers free unlimited carousel rides in the week between Christmas and New Years all around the city. If you have been following my posts, you know how I love the carousels and you can see previous posts here, here, here, and my favorite here. Certainly, there will be more to come!
