Will we be able, as usual, to enjoy the magnificent firework show let off from the Eiffel Tower on Bastille Day, on July 14, 2020? The question has no answer yet...

If there's one firework you don't want to miss is the Bastille Day firework, July 14 on the Eiffel Tower in Paris. But amid this never-seen-before period, the following question grows relevant: will it be a Bastille Day firework show in Paris?

There is nothing less certain. As a matter of fact, the traditional Bastille Day parade has turned into a simple ceremony on the place de la Concorde. As for the firework, the question has met no answer yet. According to the first rumors, the Bastille Day firework is sustained in Paris, but it will take place... without crowds! Another fact makes us think: the Montparnasse Tower has just put tickets on sale to enjoy the firework from its rooftop!

The decision is likely to reassure pyrotechnicists in France for whom Bastille Day represents most of their yearly turnover.

By the way, a concert will be held at the Champ de Mars to close Bastille day 2020 as per usual. The show will be conducted by Eun Sun Kim. Are expected, the Orchestre National de France, the Maîtrise  and the Choeur de Radio France, without forgetting several great international soloists! Because of the current context, the show will air live at 9:10 p.m. on France Inter and on France 2 TV
