What comes to mind when you think of crepes, fromages and champagne? France of course! Bastille Day is Sunday July 14th. Celebrate being or loving French things all weekend long. Here are a few ideas:
The Lambertville Fireworks are dependent on the weather and if you didn’t get your fill during our Celebration of Independence why not celebrate the French Citizens’ victory of the storming of Bastille with a few blasts by the river. You can stop at The Brick Farm Market in Hopewell on your way and pick up some fresh baguette and fromages and make a great French-insired picnic. Fireworks go off at 9pm.

Keep in mind we are in the middle of blueberry season. This is a great time to Pick-Your-Own and spend a little time in the kitchen with one of the best parts of summer — fresh berries. Maybe A’la mode? If you are up for drive , check out Solebury Orchards in PA. They have a large u-pick area and also sell cherries, apricots and peaches.
Vive La Weekend!
