Every year, on the 14th of July, France celebrates its national holiday, the Bastille Day. This is a great symbol in the French history as it was the spark that lighted up the country's revolution in 1789. This year was also the 120th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower as well as the 220th anniversary of this historical event.

Although I could not find a full collection of high quality pictures and high definition videos of the spectacular fireworks that are traditionally held that day, I have come up with a short selection below. Hope you will like it!
All pictures were found on flickr. Thanks to Franck Lassagne, cyril.letonnelier and paracetamol_p1.
Below is a one of the videos found on Vimeo. It was made using tilt-shift photography. It is actually a series of 6,000 photographs taken over the 30mn during which the fireworks took place. Enjoy!
