Storm the Bastille!


Tomorrow is Bastille Day, and Eastern State Penn is hosting a slew of events all day in celebration. They’ll be running tours of the Penn all day (admission price is $9). From 2 pm until 5:30 they’ll close Fairmont Ave. in front of ESP for a street fair, and then at 5:30 pm there will be a recreation of the Storming of the Bastille, complete with flying Tastykakes (although last year it was Twinkies). After the tossing of the cakes, people are encouraged to stay in the neighborhood to get drinks and dinner.
