In France, and for French people around the world, July 14th is celebrated as Bastille Day, the beginning of a revolution that freed the citizens from a tyrannical government.  In the late 1700s, the Bastille was used as a state prison holding mostly political dissidents. On July 14, 1789 a crowd stormed the Bastille and released seven prisoners.

This historic event is commemorated every year with parades, fireworks, and the invoking of the French Revolution:  “Liberté, égalité, fraternité” (Freedom, equality, brotherhood).  Join our celebration this Saturday, July 16th!
