Bastille Day Celebrations, France.

Bastille Day celebrations
The origins of modern Bastille Day celebrations reportedly date back to the late 19th century.
A national feast was held to honor the French republic back in 1878 while the day was made a national holiday two years later.
The most notable modern celebration of Bastille Day is the famed Bastille Day Military Parade, which takes place in Paris on the morning of the holiday.
The parade, the largest and oldest regular military parade in all of Europe, is held on the Champs-Élysées between the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde.
The parade is attended by the President of France and various foreign ambassadors and other dignitaries.
Other prominent celebrations include flyovers by the French Air Force and fireworks at the iconic Eiffel Tower on the night of the holiday.
