The opening ceremony of the 2024 Paris Olympics will be held in an open space, not in a stadium. The opening ceremony will be held on the La Seine River in Paris.
With the opening of the Summer Tokyo Olympics, it has been decided that the next Olympics will be held in Paris, France. The 2024 Summer Olympics will be held in Paris. The inaugural ceremony will be held on July 26, 2024.
Interestingly, in the modern era, all the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games have been held in one or the other stadium. But the organizing committee of the Paris Olympics has traditionally backed away from this decision. The opening ceremony of the Paris Olympics will be held on the La Seine River in Paris, not in a stadium.
Tony Estanguet, head of the organizing committee for the 2024 Paris Olympics, said: “Such an event is unprecedented. Because this is the first event of the Olympics where the opening ceremony is being held outside the stadium. Our purpose and goal is the same, so that we can convey our message to all through this inaugural ceremony. If the opening ceremony is held outside the stadium, ten times more people will be able to take part. We want everyone to be able to enjoy this event for free without any tickets.
160 boats will be stationed on the river to welcome the athletes. About ten and a half thousand athletes will take part in the parade track of the opening ceremony. “We look forward to the day,” said Tony Estanguet. Looking forward to the opening ceremony on the La Seine River. Athletes will stay on the river with the boat. Will take part in the parade. This La Seine River will become the parade track for athletes. It’s like a different thrill. ‘
Meanwhile, Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris, thinks that everyone has the right to participate in sports like the Olympics. And so he believes that such an opening ceremony will be an example.
Mayor N. Hidalgo said, “We can’t organize a sports event in a city like Paris where only people here will take part or watch.” Rather, in a city like Paris, we want everyone to come and spread it worldwide. And alternative sports may be popular sports events like the Olympic Games. The opening ceremony is a part of it. It can be a unique example in the world.
In addition, more than 60 giant screens will be set up so that everyone from any part of Paris can enjoy the opening ceremony.
