Well, the French market is going virtual this year beginning May 1 and running a week’s course. Expect live shows, store sales, food specials, and deliveries, plus Book Hill shops hosting events.

now let’s talk about one virtual event that is about French Trivia Competition and the details are given below:
We’re collaborating with our friends from France this evening with a special Online Trivia Contest – specifically focused around France and French culture! While all questions will be in English, questions vary from French history to French Geography, French Celebrities (in America), and so on. You don’t have to be from France to join, or just an expert from France. Questions are aimed towards beginners to experts in their French Language.
Participants will meet at ZOOM, and teams among the participants will be formed. All questions will be moderated and regulated (so not only will the usage of smartphones and the internet be monitored but also regulated). After we divide teams and the teams select a captain, we’ll start rounds!
In the final round, the winning team will be awarded special prizes courtesy of the French American Chamber of Commerce.
The next one is virtual truth or dare party:
Stuck at home-but excited to get to know new people? We built a special virtual ice breaker to link up with new friends tonight!
PLAY TRUTH OR DARE WITH OTHERS.
We’ll also have a bit of fun as we get to know each other. We’ll go (and rotate) into breakout rooms in our curriculum and encourage a chance to Challenge each other for the “Reality,” or maybe ask someone to do a “DARE” around the house!
Now, don’t worry because we’re going to control so the “truths” requested are intended to be enjoyable, not private, or personal inappropriately. Additionally, any of the dares will also not be inappropriate.
We’ll randomly switch everyone around in the final part of the evening so you can meet people or even request more personal conversations based on people you know online. We can move you to another virtual room, on request.
A few minutes before the gathering, all chatroom links and invitations will be sent out (to ensure that registrants attend). They are sent to the email address you are using for the registration of the event.
Any unauthorized person or someone who behaves improperly during the chat room, or anyone who uses this as a place to advertise their own services or goods, will be deleted and blocked immediately.
