La Fête Nationale

Filming La Fête nationale

On reviewing the short film of Lyon’s La Fête nationale firework show this morning, I felt it not too bad a sample of the evening. Short, snappy, and a taster of the event.

La Fête nationale in Lyon

This was our third year celebrating the day in Lyon. We knew were to go and where to expect crowds. The best view of the fireworks is along the east shore of river Saône.

Fireworks and the Crowd

There was little sign of the pushing and shoving of the crowd last night. Getting around in Lyon can often involve moving among crowds of jostling commuters, shoppers, and onlookers.
