Security will be increased this year for the popular annual “Foire Attractions”, which opens October 21 at 7 pm and runs until Monaco’s National Day, November 19, in Port Hercules.
Due to security checks at the entrances and the likelihood of queues forming, Minister of Interior Patrice Cellario has announced that steps will be taken to minimise the risk to pedestrians who may spill over on to the road along blvd Albert 1er.
Traffic restrictions will come into force between rue Princesse Caroline streets and rue Suffren Reymond, and a number of parking spaces will be suspended. The measures are intended to enhance security on the thoroughfares as well as inside the fair itself, so that all those who visit the 80 stalls, rides and attractions – organised by the Town Hall – can enjoy it to the full.
The fair is open from Sunday to Thursday, 10 am to 11 pm and Friday and Saturday until midnight (1 am on November 18).
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
As part of the newly approved Palais Honoria housing project, a gantry will be installed above Boulevard de Belgique, creating temporary traffic impediments in the area.
Thomas Fouilleron, Director of Archives and Prince's Palace Library, and Colonel Tony Varo, Superior Commander of the Public Force, have been distinguished by the French High Authorities.
