July 14 marks this French national holiday, which is celebrated in a grand fashion in Paris.
From morning to night, the city comes alive with programs and festivities. Highlights include a traditional military parade, dancing at the fire department balls, and a free music concert at the Champs-de-Mars followed by a spectacular fireworks display over the iconic Eiffel Tower.
If you are looking to splurge a little, consider booking a private yacht dinner so you can enjoy the fireworks from the water.
