Bastille Day Fireworks

Jump to last reply

Just wanted to say that for those of us in the USA who couldn't be in Paris to celebrate with you on Bastille Day, we truly missed out on an unbelievable fireworks display! However, I wanted so much to see the Eiffel Tower with the fireworks in the background, so watched it on

At 11:00 PM lights were shining on the Tower and the Sparkle display was on. It stopped and then the after a minute or two, fireworks seemed to be exploding off to the side, off screen. Then the fireworks were being shot, it seemed, off the Eiffel Tower!
It was just so beautiful. I actually taped the entire show in increments, stopping taping when it stopped, and taping again when it began again! The display lasted a little over half an hour.

I hope to see all of this in person, one day. . . . truly a Bucket List item!
