4.- Aubes Musicales du Paquis
From July 25th to August 28th
Open air Concerts at 6am in one of my favorite places in the city, Bain des Paquis for me is like a little bubble inside the city where people mix, match, eat, swim, tan. discuss, and mingle & tingle through out the year. These concerts make you wake up early and start your day with a maginifect sunrise, music and breakfast (duh).
