Some 300 people came out to celebrate at L’Enfant Cafe & Bar this past Saturday. It’s 8th Annual Bastille Day Street Bash and French Maid Race was once again not only a success amongst the French natives living in DC, but with Borderstan residents as well.

As our French contributor Laetitia Brock predicted last week, it was a party to lose your head, so to speak. The party took over Vernon Street between 18th and 19th Streets NW. The party started at 3 pm with the Stella Artois Can-Can Girls. During the celebration there were also two happy winners of round-trip vacations to Paris.

The party ended at 11 pm after DC’s largest masquerade ball, which included the appearance of “Queen Marie Antoinette” and of course, the famous French Maid Race with “King Louis XVI.”

It was definitely a great afternoon to celebrate July 14th — and even though there was a little bit of rain, that only made the party more exciting.
