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.

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.
