I was lucky to be able to spend this day in the city of Paris last year and enjoy the festivities first hand. As you may recall, I had spent the week before taking a workshop with Jane Davenport and had purposely planned to stay a second week, knowing that one of those extra days would be Bastille Day, as I'd heard it was quite the celebration.
Traditionally, there is a huge military parade in the morning. I caught just a glimpse of the beginning of the parade as I made my way to the Metro that day. Security was high and there lots of uniformed military and police around, in addition to those marching in the parade.
