Bastille Day Bash comes to Mount Pleasant

June 30, 2012 by  

On Saturday, July 14, the Bastile Day Bash will be held at Sanctuary Hall and Gardens located at 2125 Highway 17 North in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. This is a family event and takes place between 6:00 pm and 10:30 pm.

This event is in commemoration of the French national holiday, Bastile Day, which honors the storming of the “Bastille,” which happened on July 14th, 1789 and was the true beginning of the French Revolution. The actual “Bastille” was a French prison and a status symbol of “Louis the 16th Ancient Regime for absolute power. When the commoners captured this power symbol, it signaled that they no longer endorsed the king’s power and that the power should be based on the nation.

During this event, there will be wines and cheese tasting, family fun and games, live music, a costume contest, and a photo booth to capture the image. The celebration will also celebrate the French cuisines, wines, and champagnes of the homeland. This is a great time to visit with friends. A babysitting service is available at $40 per child from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm but you must register to book a space by calling 843-801-4100.

With the being the first in what is set to be an annual event, it is sure to intrigue locals and possibly even attract visitors from other states, such as Virginia and West Virginia, and areas such as South Charleston, which has its own French quarter nearby.

Poster printing and flyer printing may have been used to advertise this event to the people in the area. Tickets may be purchased through the website and are priced at $25 at the door or $20 in advance. For more information, please visit the Sanctuary Hall and Gardens website or call 843-801-4100.
