It almost escaped my notice that today is Bastille Day which is otherwise known in France as La Fête Nationale. What jogged my memory was a series of photos on MilitaryPhotos.Net of the military parades associated with this day in France.
Say what you will about the French, they do parades well!

Below is a report on the parade by French television.
Of course, there is this alternate celebration of Bastille Day by the band Rush from their 1975 album Caress of Steel.
