A Costume Party At the Orangerie of Chateau Versailles


If you don’t know what to do on 9 July, put on your superman suit and fly over here. Chateau Versailles is perfectly visible from above even at night. They say the Grand Canal had to be drained during WWII, because its reflection served as a navigation landmark. This means you should have no trouble landing by midnight on the three-and-a-half-mile strip of water. A little delay is OK. The party will go on until morning. All costumes are welcome, Superman, Batman, Spiderman, although preference is naturally given to the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. So, walk right in, even if a little wet.
