Though the holiday marking the beginning of the French Revolution is celebrated on July 14th in France, Smith Street's 8th Annual Bastille Day Pétanque Tournament is scheduled for Sunday, July 18th. Good thing! That means that we all get to take part.
With 80 teams from around the world competing on Smith Street between Bergen and Pacific Street, it is the largest pétanque tournament in North America.
So come out and celebrate, watch the players, drink a pastis, eat great food and listen to live music.
