In fact, it is about a fact that happened on july 14th 2000. A guy called Gad Weil decided to roganise a giant picnic on a 400 miles long virtual table. It gathered 2 million people.

The guy decided to renew the experience this year all over France, to make that event an anual event that would happen every 14th of July.

So almost everywhere in France, from big cities to small village, they hop people will gather for that giant picnic

Try to find out the closest place for you on www.lepiqueniquedelarepublique.fr

Clic on "les villes participantes" on the right (2nd line of the menu).

The closest places to Paris are "Le Kremlin Bicêtre" (there is a metro line going there), "Puteaux", and le Près-Saint-Gervais".

Have a good picnic
