I Stumbled Upon This French Celebration Today


It was in honor of Bastille Day, which is kinda like our Fourth Of July here.


It was apparently HUGE, covering four city blocks, but I got there right when they were shutting down so I missed all the dancing and costumes and stuff. What I didn’t miss, though? All the “french” things they sold, like


lemonade (?????)

french flag cookies

and “french” fries (or freedom fries if you’re a redneck Republican)


I also saw some barets, like this one on a man wearing a ballon monkey.


And my favorite, of course – the French man who was pushing his poodle (who has its haired dyed like his beard) around in a stroller.
