Bastille Day on 60th Street was celebrated earlier today from noon to 6 PM between Fifth and Lexington Avenues. The street festival brings the best of France to New York for an afternoon of activities and delights for the entire family. From tasting delicious treats to listening to music at our day-long concert, everyone will enjoy the myriad attractions provided by artists and artisans from various regions of France, as well as other French-speaking countries. For more than ten years, Bastille Day on 60th Street has been the largest public celebration of the historic friendship between France and the United States commemorating France’s own Independence Day on July 14, 1789. Some sights during the street fair are captured in the images above.

Noel, I love your blog!
I would love to know all those activities before they happen.
Would you announce them some days before? or in a calendar? That would be great!
