Le Marais firemen ball on Bastille day
Every year, the Bastille Day celebrations take place in most of the Fire Stations in Paris. True to form this year again, they will be held on 13 & 14 July, at the beautiful Hotel de Chavigny, built by François Mansart who was the architect of the Palace of Versailles. The Sévigné Fire Station was the first to be founded by Napoleon in 1814. Newly promoted Captain Sébastien and his team will welcome you like friends. Last year, He and his officers treated us like kings, giving us the privilege of visiting some of the private rooms of this 17th century mansion which are not open to the public. Canadian photographer Veronika Von Volkova was with us to shoot pictures within the building, in the intimacy of the firemen, just before they open their door to the 10 000 visitors expected during these two nights from 9 pm to 4 am.
Champagne bottles are affordable enough for visitors to drink all night long and softs drinks are less than 3 euros. In both courtyards, live DJs will be playing the latest hits as well as the glorious disco hits and 90’s best of techno and electro music. Entry is free, but please give generously considering the benefits will help their charities ! 10 euros each minimum would be a fair price to support the incredible work they do every day to protect us and save us. Come as early as 8:30 to avoid waiting too long to enter at 7 rue de Sévigné 75004 Paris.
