Bastille day is a French national holiday celebrated each year on the July 14th. In France, we call this day the “Fête Nationale” or “Fête du 14 juillet”.
It commemorates the storming of the Parisian prison, named Bastille in 1789. It marked the beginning of the French Revolution.
Every July 14th, in Paris, an army military parade takes place. At night, fireworks illuminate Paris (Eiffel tower).
