Celebrate La Fête Nationale

Eiffel Tower

     Paris touched the sky from the top of the Paris La Défense Grande Arche at 08:30 am on July 14 Bastille Day, at one of the greatest spots to celebrate as low flying fighter jets and other aircraft zoomed above the building before heading to the Champs-Elysées.
     At 10:30 a.m., all planes and helicopters from the French flotilla flew on the historic axis of Paris, only a few dozen meters above the rooftop.
     Known as La Fête Nationale or Le 14 Juillet in French, the day is celebrated with fireworks and a parade. One of the most important days in the history of France, July 14 marks the fall of the Bastille, a military fortress and political prison in 1789.
     In 1776 the people of France, with the help of the Marquis de Lafayette made it possible for America to win its Independence from England.
     A scant dozen years later storming of the Bastille marked the first major act of violence by the people in the French Revolution against the monarchy of Louis XVI during a major economic crisis caused in part by the cost of intervening in the American Revolution and aggravated by a regressive system of taxation, as well as poor harvests in the late 1780s.
     The French Revolution lasted from 1789 to 1799 and spelled the end of the French monarchy.
     Bastille Day was celebrated with big fireworks displays from Paris to Disneyland France and elsewhere in the world.
