14 July Fête Nationale
FETE NATIONALE CELEBRATIONS
La fête de la Bastille or la Fête nationale marks the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 and the beginning of the French Revolution.
The Bastille was seen as a symbol of the absolute power of Louis the 16th’s Regime and its storming and defeat represented a symbol of liberty in the fight against perceived oppression of French citizens by the Monarchy.
Bastille Day was declared a French national holiday in 1880, a celebration of the birth of the Republic.
Processions, fireworks, dancing, and a lot of celebrating mark the event every year throughout France.
