The Bains des Pâquis are a very popular place where the inhabitants of Geneva like to dip their feet in the water. Built in 1872, they are located on the Pâquis jetty and are entirely managed by the Association des Usagers des Bains des Pâquis. The Fête de la Musique, also known in English as Music Day, Make Music Day or World Music Day, is an annual music celebration that takes place on 21 June ( but usually during the previous or following weekend). On Music Day the citizens of a city or country are allowed and urged to play music outside in their neighborhoods or in public spaces and parks. Free concerts are also organized, where musicians play for fun and not for payment. 22.06.1993 © 1993 Didier Ruef
