Dear Members and Friends of Alliance Française d’Indianapolis,
People of all ages and backgrounds are invited to attend a unique event: Indiana Bastille Day. This celebration of the French national day will be held on Saturday, July 13th from 5-11pm in Fortville’s Landmark Park.
This year’s Indiana Bastille Day will keep participants entertained in a very Parisian atmosphere thanks to an authentic French singer. A pétanque tournament and several marionette shows will entertain both young and old. A wine and beer tasting will provide opportunities to try a variety of specially chosen beverages for the occasion. Budding artists will get a chance to learn to paint in a very “Montmartre-like” “Paint in the Park” setting. Costumed performers will add a historical dimension to the event. Little ones will have the opportunity to make candlelight lanterns for the traditional lantern procession at dusk. And a one-of-a-kind laser light show will elicit oohs and aahs from the crowd while prompting children to break into dance.
Go ahead and spread the word… So please meet us on Saturday July 13th from 5pm to 11pm! Best regards, The AFI Board
