Bastille Day Event - COMPLETED
2.5 Hour Firework Cruise

Welcome to the Bastille Day Event aboard the Paula D, the iconic Ottawa River Cruise that promises to take you on a cultural journey like no other. Bastille Day is an important day in French history, and we’re excited to commemorate it with a spectacular cruise celebration.

The event will be held on July 14, which marks the day of the storming of the Bastille in 1789, a significant event in French history that marked the beginning of the French Revolution. The event paved the way for the birth of modern France, and it’s an important date for French people all over the world.

We’re thrilled to announce that the Embassy of France here in Ottawa has organized a fantastic fireworks show for the event, and we can’t wait for you to experience it. The fireworks display promises to be a magnificent spectacle, and we’re sure you’ll be blown away by the stunning visuals.

The cruise will take you on a journey along the Ottawa River, offering you a chance to enjoy the stunning views of the city and its surroundings. You’ll be able to witness the city’s skyline from a unique vantage point, and we’re sure that the views will take your breath away.

In conclusion, the Bastille Day Event on the Paula D promises to be an unforgettable experience. With a stunning fireworks display, drinks, and breathtaking views, you’ll be transported to the heart of France without leaving Ottawa.
