Today various cities and countries all over the world are celebrating Bastille Day (or La Fête Nationale, as it’s formally called). In France the sky is often lit up with fireworks, and the streets are filled with parades, festivities and celebrations from dusk ’til dawn. What I would give to be in Paris during the Bastille Day Military Parade. But no matter where you are, from Baltimore to San Francisco, you can most certainly find a way to celebrate this occasion even if it means throwing a Bastille Day party of your own. All you need is a little blue, white and red … and food, of course.
