Meandering with Mike K – Bastille Day Edition

Don’t have to be a PPL member to attend.

Whoa, haven’t been to Fairmount in a long time.

What better time to revisit then the annual Bastille Day festival.

https://www.easternstate.org/visit/events/bastille-day

Fairmount Avenue is closed and art and frivolity take over. Events for all ages and
people in costumes with a French theme, so some great photo opportunities.

An event not to be missed. Outside the Eastern State Penitentiary. Includes a farcical theater re-enactment, with Marie Antoinette saying “let them eat cake”
and throwing Tastycakes to the crowd below. (this is Philly of course)

The Storming of the Bastille starts at 5:30

End up at Bridgit’s 726 N 24th St.  Homey restaurant & bar with an Italian-inspired menu plus a large list of craft & Belgian beers.

No charge for this one. Huge crowds, so this is an event not a neighborhood walk.

Take public transportation.

Let’s exchange phone numbers at the coffee shop so I can text you when we end up at Bridgit’s.
