Bastille Day 2012

Of course here in the U.S., we have July 4th, Independence Day, but France celebrates its national holiday on July 14, and Chicago will help be part of the celebrations.

It's called Bastille Day (, and this July 14, there is a new celebration for that at Daley Plaza.

We got into the mood for the festivities with French music on our ABC7 News Saturday Morning. Olivier Comets and Ludivine Marche, leaders of the organizing committee for the event, and guitar players Cedric Chereau and Guillaume Keck, came into our studio to set the stage.
