(PRESS RELEASE VIA SNO) – On Saturday 14th July, France celebrates its National Day which is also known in English as “Bastille Day”.

This commemorates the taking over of the Bastille, by Parisians who revolted on 14th July 1789, and the Feast of the Federation of 14th July 1790, which was in celebration of the first anniversary of the revolution. Both events paved the way to French democracy characterized by its motto “Liberty, Equality and Fraternity”.

A reception is taking place at the official residence of His Excellency the French Ambassador where government officials, the diplomatic corps, private citizens including the French community, and other invited guests, will join in the celebration.

Long live Saint-Lucia ! Vivre la France! And long live Franco-Saint-Lucian friendship!
