Happy Bastille Day July 14th 2023!
BASTILLE DAY: The Bastille is a medieval fortress and prison in Paris. Many people in France associated it with the harsh rule of the Bourbon monarchy in the late 1700’s. On July 14, 1789, troops stormed the Bastille. This was a pivotal event at the beginning of the French Revolution. Fête de la Fédération was held on July 14, 1790. This was a way to celebrate the establishment of a constitutional monarchy in France. Bastille day is the end of the Bourbon monarchy but it is also the symbol of people coming together, strong and united. Celebrate today with our French friends!
