Sunday (7/14) marks the 12th annual Bastille Day celebration on Smith Street from Bergen to Pacific. Why is this neck of the woods celebrating the end of France’s monarchy? As usual, the press release explains it all:
Our neighborhoods are so filled with French families that the public schools are French/English bilingual. One third of our 220 storefronts are Food & Drink establishments—Vive les gourmets!!! We have huge support from our local business partners, especially Bar Tabac to make this happen.
In addition, there will be live music, food, the largest petanque tournament outside of France, and, of course, crepes. The party starts at 10am, so set your alarm clocks, you dirty stay-outs!
