Happy Bastille Day!
The annual Bastille Day Celebration and Street Fair in Cambridge.
We celebrated Bastille Day a few days early this week by attending the annual Bastille Day Celebration sponsored by Sandrine's Bistro in Cambridge. (You can read a review of Sandrine's by searching the name on our blog). Crowds gathered to hear traditional Parisian street music, taste foods of the region, imbibe in a refreshing drink or two and watch the waiter's race down Holyoke Street. The annual celebration seems to get larger every year as we join in to celebrate France's biggest holiday.
Typical French cuisine was offered by local restaurants.
What would a Street Fair be without the Balloon Guy?
Traditional Parisian street musicians lent an air of authenticity.
Sweets Cupcakes offered their fine treats at the event. You can read a review of Sweets by searching our blog.
