I get the impression that it’s a day of celebration, as well it should be.

This site keeps rejecting the "e" with the right leaning overhead "slash" for the proper French spelling!

I've been to a few Bastille Days on Smith st when I lived in Brooklyn.
Twice on the East Side of Manhattan 60th St between 5thbAve to Lexington Ave put on by the French Institute.

Great fun!
