Bastille Day 2014 in Sacramento

Happy Bastille Day!  For a change of pace, I present KCRA's clip Bastille Day celebrations make their way through downtown--downtown Sacramento, that is.

Sacramento's own version of Bastille Day, which celebrates the beginning of the French Revolution, was held in downtown Sacramento.
Not to be outdone, the Sacramento Bee posted its own coverage of the 2014 Bastille Day Waiter's Race.

Waiters and waitresses from local restaurants battle for cash prizes in tribute to the Parisian footrace.

Gianna Jordan and Sam Paris, the Waiter's Race champions, discuss their strategy for the footrace.
So it's not the Tahiti garrison dancing the haka or a military parade down the Champs Elysee, but a promotion of downtown restaurants.  So what.  It's exactly the kind of thing I enjoy when I'm in an "I can't be all DOOM all the time" mood.
