BASTILLE DAY CELEBRATIONS on JULY 11th in New York City..."VIVA la FRANCE" by Philip S. Kampe

BASTILLE DAY is a National Holiday in France. The Holiday celebrates the People's Revolt that took place on July 11th, 1789.

In France, it is considered their Independence Day, much like our own.

It is a Holiday where everyone cries out, "VIVA la FRANCE".

NEW YORK LOVES TO CELEBRATE FRENCH CULTURE.

On Sunday, July 11th, an Annual three block fete takes place on 60th Street between 5th Avenue and Lexington from noon to 6pm. The French Themed FETE features petanque, kids activities, delicious treats, music and a myriad of attractions.

Celebrate like the French....

If you are in the mood for French wine and cheese, feel free to go to the French Institute Alliance Francaise (FIAF) at 22 East 60th for samples.

The Celebration for BASTILLE DAY is in your backyard.
JOIN IN and CELEBRATE!!

Enjoy Bastille Day and VIVA la FRANCE!!!

++Just a Reminder: If you are unable to attend the NYC Bastille Day Celebration (maybe you are watching the World Cup Final), mark either July 14th, the True Bastille Day or July 18th for other Celebrations, which I will write about in my next blog. Both events take place in the NYC area, one in Queens and the other in Brooklyn++
