It's a lot like the Kentucky Derby
 
Finding a spot on the rail, lots of anticipation, then it's all over very quickly. View from the Pont Royal going into the Louvre.

We planned our trip last year, not even realizing we would be in Paris for the final stage. Good timing!

Hope you had a bet on him.
