Bastille Day, Seattle Style

Vive la France! July 14 is France's «La Fête Nationale», commemorating the storming of the Bastille during the French Revolution. A couple of years ago (before I opened this blog and my ETSY shop), I checked out the Bastille Day celebration sponsored by Seattle's French and Francophone community at the Seattle Center.
Despite the light summer rain and having the Space Needle instead of La Tour Eiffel, it was quite fun! There was lots of wine, Perrier, pomme frites, macarons, and baguette sandwiches to go around along with music, vintage French cars, and anything French.
