Local French residents will celebrate France’s National Day on Wednesday 13, at 6:30, at Sofitel-Hotel Macau at Ponte 16.
Bastille Day is traditionally celebrated on July 14. The Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, the Alliance Française de Macau and the France Macau Business Association has joined to organise a cocktail reception followed by a dinner and dance party.
The Consul General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, Arnaud Barthelemy and MSAR’s Secretary for Administration and Justice, Florinda Chan, will attend.
French citizens celebrate La Fête Nationale, their national day, on the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison on July 14, 1789. It was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation and of the reconciliation of all the French inside the constitutional monarchy, which preceded the First Republic following the French Revolution.
