Les Halles' Liberty Festival & Bastille Day
Liberty Festival: July 4 – 14 was the annual Les Halles Liberty Festival & Bastille Day celebration at Les Halles Downtown. Each year we celebrate American & French freedom for eleven days, from America’s Independence Day to France’s Bastille Day. During the Liberty Festival the restaurant features a special menu (last year's menu) as well as other festivities. Culminating on Bastille Day, July 14th, is a FREE outdoor block party featuring the famous Waiter’s Race in which waiters from across the city and the world show their stripes as they race down the street with a full tray. The winner must cross the finish line without spilling a drop! To share in the fun there is also the Customer’s, Children’s and Chef’s races.Liberty Festival sponsors included: Ciao Bella Gelato, Volvic Natural Spring Water, Happy Chef Uniforms, and Kronenbourg 1664.
