What is there to see and do in Paris this October 2016 If you’re new in town we’ve rounded up a massive list for you pick choose and refuse. October weather is normally jacket wearing time still, but we do manage to get some warm days so you can still wander around with ease (umbrella in tote). If you’re an expat living here you’re probably as excited as we are for the regular activities back this year like Nuit Blanche, Pitchfork Festival, Paris Fashion Week (with Tranoi), Salon du Chocolat, and Halloween.
