Le Tou­quet Paris-​Plage 2011 will be a year of major under­tak­ings and a birth­day unlike any other

It was actu­ally on 28 March 1912 that Paris-​Plage as a town became inde­pen­dent from the town of Cucq. Start­ing in the sum­mer of 2011 and con­tin­u­ing until the end of the fol­low­ing year, the town’s coun­cil has decided to cel­e­brate the resort’s 100th anniver­sary which will cul­mi­nate in a top secret event on 28 March 2012. The leit­mo­tif: 100 years — 100 events… and the address cer­e­mony was the oppor­tu­nity to reveal the first event. The entire town coun­cil had assem­bled in the Palais des Con­grès for the unveil­ing of the model of the sculp­ture, signed by Alain Godon, and which will be erected on this road junc­tion. This sculp­ture is none other than the Eif­fel Tower and was orig­i­nally cre­ated by the artist for the court­yard of the Bris­tol Hotel… this time how­ever it is to be a per­ma­nent struc­ture and with its 10 metres in height it will tower proudly. The sculp­ture, a cocky salute from Paris-​Plage to Paris should be fin­ished towards the end of July.
