Great Bastille Day celebration in New York at 60th and 5th Avenue. over 20,000 people were there with food sellers and other entertainment. It was a perfect day...no rain....and a great crowd. The organizers even provided great enterainement. There were clowns dressed in colorful costumes blowing up balloons and also 3 beautiful girls doing the French Can Can dance dressed in eye catching costumes. I took a video of their dancing....it can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkRC_l69Tl8
