Bastille Day in Brooklyn -- La Rue de Smith Sautait!

Dancing in the Street
Smith Street was positively jumping Sunday with the biggest Bastille Day in the U.S. Sand covered the street for the famous petanque tournament, played with tennis-ball-sized metal balls (looked a bit like bocce).

Bar Tabac, a big sponsor (along with Robin des Bois and Ricard) was packed, people were dancing in the street, and the Blue Orchard orchestra (below right) made you feel you were in Paris.
