Oh là là, it's New York's biggest annual public celebration of France's independence

Remember freedom fries? Thankfully those days are more than a presidential term behind us and we're back to appreciating all that is good about France. The wine, the cheese, the macarons — it's all paraded today at Bastille Day on 60th Street, New York's biggest annual public celebration marking France's independence. Spanning three Upper East Side blocks, the family-friendly festivities include music, culinary treats and performances. This year, eccentric, cult French rocker Philippe Katerine is flying in to perform a special "d'avant-match" concert on Friday night, and FIAF is introducing the inaugural Bastille Day Banquet, a savory three-course boxed lunch which can be purchased in advance or at the event. Grab a beret, brush up on "La Mareillaise," and make your way over to this culturally rich soiree.
