Fireworks salute Bastille Day’s traditional military parade
UPDATE: Fireworks ignite the French sky as another Bastille Day comes to an end.
On July 14, 1789, the people of France stormed the Bastille violently adding momentum to the French Revolution. The medieval fortress and prison had become a symbol of the King’s authority, who stood by and watched as the French economy plummeted and taxes soared.
The annual Bastille Day celebration honors this victory with one of Europe’s largest military parades along the Champs-Élysées in Paris. This year’s parade strove to be a grand event for French President Francois Hollande’s first year in office.
