Hold a Bastille Day celebration a day late? Pourquoi pas? Join in the celebration this Saturday in Justin Herman Plaza from 11-8. The day starts with a kermesse, an outdoor festival of food and wine booths, a Citroen vintage car show (the 1972 DS20 convertible may be my all-time favorite automobile) and games of petanque. Later there will be a bal populaire with French dance bands (not for the accordion adverse). Free. If you are a stickler for accuracy, there are festivities in Belden Place on Friday, the real Bastille Day. And for a convincing dose of Paris, there’s always Café Claude which fetes on both days.
