Bastille Day French Festival

Once again our intrepid WCC photographers braved the unpredictable Melbourne weather to attend an outing. This month we attended the Bastille Day French Festival in the Atrium of Federation Square in the city on Saturday 13th July 2019.

Despite predictions of dire weather conditions, good fortune was on our side. Federation Square possessed the only patch of blue sky in Melbourne, during the morning and early afternoon.

We met up in a café in the Atrium which allowed us to plan independent activities and browse the many and varied French flavoured market stalls. Over the morning we regrouped for particular events like the ‘l’escrime’ (fencing) demonstrations and the French Can Can! (ooooh la la!)

Phill Harris - CanCan - CanDo

We enjoyed our lunch purchased the food stalls of our choice and sat together in Deakin Edge theatre, chatting and listening to French live band ‘Vive la Différence’.

View our photographs of this exciting event in our outings gallery.

Hope to see you at our next outing in August!
