Bastille Day commemorates the storming of Bastille. It was a key event in French history that helped to catapult France into revolution and eventually led to its people being given more freedoms, such as freedom of speech, religion etc. The day is celebrated with fireworks displays throughout Paris on July 14th every year since 1880-something or other (I can’t remember).
July 14th marks when revolutionaries stormed and took over one prison -the Bastille- which at the time had held nearly 1 000 prisoners for four years during an economic crisis due primarily to poverty among citizens who were unable pay their taxes because most refused employment offered by King Louis XVI’s government leading up until then henceforth living off subsistence farming all while still maintaining.
