The Military Parade of July 14
“At the Champs Elysees … At the Champs Elysees … In the sun … In the rain” … Every year, it’s the same song: the National Day of July 14 offers us a large-scale show with the Military Parade on the most beautiful avenue of the world. And if you enjoyed your stay at the hotel Alixia to take a tour of the Champs Elysees and attend the parade?
At 10 am, the trumpets will announce the arrival of the President of the Republic at the top of the Champs Elysees. Then it will be the turn of the drums to vibrate for the Military Parade of July 14 with the presence of elites of the French army. A solemn ceremony of 2 hours to celebrate the national holiday during which French military regiments will parade. The sky will also see helicopters and planes, as well as the Reaper drone.
You may not know it … But July 14 is a national holiday since 1880! It is a civic festival that marks an important step in building the link between the army and the people. The Military Parade on July 14 follows a symbolic journey from the Star (representing the war) to the Place de la Concorde (representing peace) since 1919.
July 14 does not stop at his morning Military Parade. You are likely to see troops mounted on the main arteries of Paris. And, in the evening, you can watch the fireworks of July 14 from the Champ-de-Mars. An unforgettable show that will dazzle the Eiffel Tower with a thousand lights. As a preamble, the Orchester national de France and the choir and the mastership of Radion France are likely to move the public with an open-air concert.
Get ready for a veritable feast for your eyes!
