le 14 juillet
In English it is Bastille Day, in French it is la Fête Nationale, or, quite simply, le 14 juillet. One of the most important holidays on the calendar, it is especially celebrated on the French Riviera where much of the country has come for their summer holidays. Many towns, like St Paul de Vence, Valdeblore and Tourettes sur Loup throw popular bals the night before. While it sounds formal these are really just loud parties with lots of music to inspire an evening of dancing and fun. In Nice, the whole town goes out to stroll the Promenade des Anglais in anticipation of a grandiose fireworks display, but there are simpler, less crowded shows in every town along the coast.
