Bastille Inspired

France will be in celebration mode this Saturday, July 14.  Bastille Day, referred to as La Fête de la Bastille or La Fête Nationale, marks the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 and the first major event of the French Revolution of 1789.  Yes, serious celebration will take place all across the Hexagon.

At Versailles, there will be a huge picnic on the banks of the Grand Canal.  The dress code, white.  And les Grandes Eaux Musicales, the Musical Fountains in the Château’s elegant garden, will be in full splendor, a beautiful sight!

You can bet out of all the celebrating cities, Paris, the darling of France, will be putting it’s best fête forward.  An impressive and very patriotic Military Parade will march it’s way down Champs Elysées, one of the most beautiful avenues in Paris.

  • 66 Planes
  • 4950 Men and 16 Dogs
  • 241 of the Republican Guard on horses
  • 450  Vehicles and 83 Motorcycles
  • 11 Parachutists
  • Thousands of people enjoying themselves to the max

                                  Impressive indeed!

 

The grand finale will be a massive fireworks display near the gorgeous Eiffel Tower.  The musical theme of the show is “the Disco Years”, complete with a gigantic disco ball that is being installed on the tower itself!  Paris will be electric!
