8th Annual Bastille Day-Sacramento

Jul 14, 2017

Cheers to 8 years of Sacramento Bastille Days! We had a BLAST having our Sacramento photobooth out for the Waiters’ Race and street festival in the Handle District of Midtown!

What is “Bastille Day” anyways? Bastille Day is the common name given in English-speaking countries to the French National Day, which is celebrated on 14th of July each year. In France, it is formally called la Fête nationale, or simply “Le Quatorze Juillet.” The day is celebrated throughout the country with military parades, fireworks and festivities. The date marks the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789, when a mob of angry Parisians stormed the Bastille prison, a symbol of the monarchy’s tyrannical rule.

Sacramento’s Bastille Day is inspired by the famous footrace in Paris. The Waiters’ Race benefits the Alliance Française de Sacramento and the Sacramento French Film Festival.

So what is this “Waiters’ Race”? Well, the goal is to make it to the finish line without spilling water or without dropping the tray altogether. Judges are at each corner and the finish line.

Sactown Mag describes the race as:

50 servers from restaurants all over the city will speed-walk around the flag-adorned business district, completing two laps of the block bounded by 18th and 19th and L Streets and Capitol Avenue—all while balancing a bottle of Perrier and two half-filled glasses on a tray.

The first waiter and waitress to cross the finish line without dropping or significantly spilling the contents of their tray will each take home $500, while second and third place winners in both the men’s and women’s divisions will receive $250 and $100, respectively. Afterward, kids can partake in their own version of the race, as they try to make it through the blue, white and red balloon archway at the finish line without dropping water balloons.
