This weekend on July 14th, celebrate Bastille Day! It is the French equivalent of our Independence Day which Americans celebrate on July 4th. Technically, it is French National Day, commemorating the 1790 Fete de la Federation, held on the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille on July 15th, 1789. Many celebrations will be held throughout France and all over the world, including our very own Louisiana
So, if you can’t spend it in Gay Paris, celebrate right here in Baton Rouge at one of our French Creole restaurants. Or, if you prefer to immerse yourself in a French community celebration, try Breaux Bridge and the fun-loving Cafe des Amis restaurant.
Ask for the special Bastille Day Package at The Stockade in Baton Rouge, and spend a relaxing night in one of the charming guest rooms.
