Bastille Day & Music - La Fête Nationale
La Fête Nationale 2015 - "Paris is not the only city to observe le 14 juillet. From big cities to small villages, festivities across the lands are marked by sports, cultural events, and gastronomy.
Some hold picnics and music, or a bal musette (French dance accompanied by an accordion band) and of course firework shows. Others commemorate on the side of the road, cheering and waving flags for the French contenders of the Tour de France. What an honour to win one of the Grande Boucle stages on July 14!
Across the country, people of all ages come together to celebrate, and simply enjoy the public holiday." Excerpted via nt.rendezvousenfrance.com/en/events/bastille-day
