Get ready for the annual Bastille Day Celebration on Smith Street. It will happen on Sunday, July 15, from Noon-8PM, with the epicenter being at Smith and Dean Streets. Here's info from the Brooklyn Boule blog:
Join us for the biggest Bastille Day celebration outside of France! Sunday July 15, 2007, Bar Tabac, Robin des Bois, and Ricard sponsor a day-long outdoor festival celebrating all things French. Brooklyn's Smith Street is closed to traffic between Bergen and Pacific Streets where the tarmac is transformed to sandy petanque courts. Live Music (Blue Orchid) and a wide variety of tasty food options fuel a scene that is growing in size and reputation with each new year. Bring the kids for a great Sunday afternoon! Bar Tabac and Robin des Bois will be serving brunch and dinner as usual. Out on the street the grill offers merguez sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, and of course, French fries! The outdoor uvette serves up beer, Ricard, and chilled rose. Fly the tri-color and pitch some boules with us.
Provence en Boite will be providing jugglers, a petting zoo, face painters and other activities for children.
