Smith Street Bastille Day & Pétanque Tournament 2008: C'était Super Chouette!

















Not quite France, but close enough!

The 2008 Smith Street "Bastille Day" celebration and annual Pétanque Tournament were a blast.
If one squinted slightly and tried to block out the high-rises of downtown Brooklyn, one could almost imagine being in Marseilles, what with the blazing sun, the Ricard umbrellas and the pétanque players.
Turning Smith Street into a giant sandbox so that competing teams can battle it out, is a blast. Sipping a glass of champagne while watching it all....priceless!
