July 4, 2018 - American Independence Day

Celebrating What Made America Great!

Independence Day (United States)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain (now officially known as the United Kingdom). Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.....

Independence Day is a national holiday marked by patriotic displays. Similar to other summer-themed events, Independence Day celebrations often take place outdoors. Independence Day is a federal holiday, so all non-essential federal institutions (like the postal service and federal courts) are closed on that day. Many politicians make it a point on this day to appear at a public event to praise the nation's heritage, laws, history, society, and people.....

On July 14th from noon to 10 p.m., Piermont Avenue will be closed to traffic for the village's annual Bastille Day celebration. French flags will flap along the avenue where restaurants and shops will have outdoor tables. The streets will fill with live music and the pleasant aromas of traditional French, Italian, Continental, Mexican, Irish and American cuisine served by local restaurants. Witness a re-enactment of the storming of the Bastille. There will be a guillotine on display, albeit with a wooden blade.

Festival goers are encouraged to show up in period clothes- think 18th-century raiment for a costume contest and the reenactment of the Bastille Day march. Last year's event was a huge success and this year's event is sure to be bigger and better.

Celebrating What Made France Great!

Bastille Day is the name given in English speaking countries to the French National Day, which is celebrated on 14 July each year. The French National Day commemorates the beginning of the French Revolution with the Storming of the Bastille on the 14 July 1789, as well as the Fête de la Fédération on the 14 July 1790. Celebrations are held all over France.
