Like things that go boom? Fête de Sainte Barbe at Les Invalides, Paris

December 6th, 2014

Sainte Barbe is the patron saint of the artillery (it’s kind of a long and gorey story). Though December 4th is her saint day it’s being observed today and tomorrow, December 6th and 7th, by the Musée de l’Armée at Les Invalides.  Soldiers in uniforms from the past, artillery displays and of course, things that go boom in action.

2:30 – 5:00 PM today and tomorrow.  Free

Hotel des Invalides, 129 rue de Grenelle, 7th
