In France, we celebrate “le 14 juillet” (July 14th), but in the US we say we celebrate Bastille Day!
To celebrate that day, we went first to our favorite French cheese place: La Pastorale, in the French Market under Ogilvie Transportation Center in Chicago,
…and bought some nice Comté.
With some nice baguette, we were ready to eat under the Eiffel Tower!
Then we went to Daley Plaza, where a sort of block party was organized in honor of Bastille Day.
Here is the video banner of the event
There was food – nice crepes, drink – good wine, and even great music. Here is a short excerpt of 2 fantastic French singers.
There was even French cancan!!
It was neat to meander among the crowd and hear people talking French together. it was a beautiful afternoon, and the architecture around fit the nice ambiance
DID YOU CELEBRATE BASTILLE DAY?
