Paris bans smoking in parks. From June 8th, smoking is prohibited in all parks in the French capital. And if you get caught smoking, you will receive a 38 euro fine. With this decision, Paris is following the footsteps of New York City, where smoking in parks has been banned for a few years now.



Paris is not the first European city to ban smoking in nature. Italy and Germany have smoking bans in place at certain beaches. And in Austria, some resorts are completely smoke-free. And now the parks in Paris. 



Cigar Truck

If this has any influence on the return of the Cigar Truck to the city is not clear. The Cigar Truck will be in front of the Eiffel Tower on June 15th. That’s exactly a week after the introduction of the new anti-smoke rule. The Cigar Truck is a design by Master of Havana Cigars Manu Harit and Cyril Gerard from the Paris Aquarium. Hosts of the Cigar Truck are Atilla Szaba and Alexis Powilewicz. It’s the second year in a row that the Cigar Truck is visiting Paris.

“This year, we will be open on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with as always a selection of Cuban cigars. The Esplanade, ideally located in front of the Aquarium de Paris, with a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower, which lights up every hour, will allow us to organize a major cigar evening every month. This is this year’s major innovation,” says Manu Harit.

The first Cigarden Party, with cigars, drinks and Cigar Journal will take place on Saturday, June 15, starting at 5:30 p.m.  Everybody is invited, no reservation needed. The location is Terrace de L’Aquarium de Paris, 5 avenue Albert de Mun, Paris. (source for this article is Cigar Journal)
