Eastern State Penitentiary celebrates with a day-long party
Vive la France and celebrate Bastille Day at the reenactment of the storming of the Bastille. Eastern State Penitentiary serves as “The Bastille” and the festivities even include a reenactment of Marie Antoinette’s last days. A block party then ensues which typically goes until 6:30 p.m. The charming streets of the tree lined Fairmount neighborhood are very French indeed and add to the ambiance of the day. Bon chance!
