France Shows Its True Colors on Bastille Day

With blue, white, and red filling the skies and the streets of France, the country celebrates its revolution on Bastille Day or La Fête Nationale today. On the July 14 holiday, Frenchmen and Frenchwomen attend parades, watch fireworks, and enjoy air shows to remember the storming of the Bastille in 1789. See more pictures from the festivities, including gorgeous fireworks over the Eiffel Tower, France's President Nicolas Sarkozy attending the Champs-Elysees parade, and a flag performance by some scantily clad Parisian firemen not afraid to show their colors along with a little skin for the celebrations.
