The 'Expo in the City' Guide Launches with a Bang
From 19 April 2014 to 21 April 2014

To celebrate the launch of a brand new 'Expo in the City' guide, Parisian museums and parks have banded together to create an entertaining event taking place on Easter weekend — April 19 through the 21, 2014.
However, the fun does not stop after the event, as the 'Expo in the City' guide will be a permanent feature in the City of Light. At the beginning of May 2014, at those ubiquitous Parisian newsstands, the pocket-sized guide will be available for visitors and residents who want to find listings for all the latest exhibitions going on in town.
The goal of the guide is also to provide a taste of the Parisian lifestyle, offering tips on the best boutiques, cafés, restaurants, hidden gardens and other spots that only Paris insiders know about.
To celebrate the release of the 'Expo in the City' guides, 450 helium balloons will be released in the parks of Paris during Easter weekend. Each balloon will contain a guide, a chocolate rabbit and a golden ticket that can be redeemed for a museum pass on the Expo in the City website.
Visitors can head to the Parc Monceau, the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Parc Buttes-Chaumont, the Parc Floral and several other parks over Easter weekend to participate in the exciting event.
