After the finale of the fireworks at the Eiffel Tower, visitors and Parisians head off to the traditional Bals des Pompiers (Fireman’s Ball). These parties are organized at Paris fire stations in different districts of the capital on 13 and 14 July 2017.
Sometimes there is an admission fee; if this is not the case then the traditional ‘barrel’ is at the disposal of the public for them to make a donation. The money collected is used to improve the working conditions of the staff.
The organizers reserve the right of access to the ‘bals’ for safety reasons.
