On July 14, Paris celebrates the start of the French Revolution with Bastille Day celebrations. The 2013 Bastille Day events in Paris commemorate the storming of Bastille prison in 1789 to release political prisoners. The festivities feature a wide range of activities, from pyrotechnics to parades.

Families and friends gather around the Eiffel Tower, Montparnasse, and Saint Germain des Près for views of fireworks that dazzle the City of Light. Other great places to watch the action are from the roofs of buildings in the neighborhoods of Belleville, Montmartre, and the Pompidou.

The night before Bastille Day in Paris, people from all across the city dress up in elegant costumes for music and dancing at the Bal du 14 Juillet. This massive party takes at the Place de la Bastille, where the iconic prison once stood.

To honor the French military, Parisians gather along the Champs-Elysées for the annual military parade. The route starts at the Arc de Triomphe and winds down the Champs-Elysées, with decorated soldiers and marching bands taking to the streets.

Whether you want to climb to the rooftops to see colors light up the sky, or feel like catching a commemorative parade, the Bastille Day 2014 in Paris offers plenty of options for immersing yourself in French history and traditions. Vive la Révolution!
