Bastille Day on 14th July is the National Holiday of France. This day commemorates the storming of the Bastille in 1789. The Bastille was a fortress prison in Paris and there were only seven inmates during the storming. The celebrations began in 1780, the year after the Revolution and were to signify peace. A parade takes place in Paris every year which began in 1880 and is the oldest and largest military parade in Europe. This is a televised event and a great opportunity to go along and show support waving a France Held Hand Flag. There are also many other public events as well as family picnics, dinners and get-togethers.
