Octobre Rose: Hôtel de Ville
“Octobre Rose” is the name of the annual breast cancer awareness and public health campaign presented by City of Paris. This year vivid rose pink laser light art was projected onto some of the world’s most photographed Paris landmarks, including Hôtel de Ville (Paris City Hall).
If you’ll be in Paris on October 29th, the Grand Palais and its glass roof will also be lit up bright pink.
