Transcript of Bastille Day
Fireman's Gala is when fire precincts around Paris open their doors to the public for dancing, drinking, and partying. The firemen will be dressed in their uniforms and waiting to entertain the tons of carousers who enter. Traditional Bastille Day Activities A common element of the traditional Bastille Day military parade in Paris is an airshow. This shot shows French Air Force planes flying over the Place de la Concorde in Paris for the occasion of the Bastille Day This historical illustrations shows the storming of the Bastille prison in central Paris on July 14th, 1789. The prison, housed in a fortified medieval structure which was later ravaged by fire and destroyed, was targeted due to its large arms stores, and the storming by insurrectionists was a critical moment in the first stirrings of the French Revolution. Today, the Colonne du Juillet stands at the site, though it does not actually commemorate the storming of the Bastille, but rather the 1830 Revolution known as "Les Trois Glorieuses". FIN
