Scenes From Yesterday's Bastille Day Celebration in Bishop Arts.

A little bit of rain wasn't about to stop yesterday's Bastille Day celebration in the Bishop Arts district. No way. Not when there was wine and various French foods to be consumed, fake mustaches to be worn and horrible fake accents to be used.

Nope. There was just no stopping the fifth annual Oak Cliff celebration, which recalls this neighborhood's origins as the French-inspired Utopian society La Reunion.

Music filled the air, booths sold mussels, baguettes, pastries, macarons and crepes, and no fewer than three different types of wines were made available for purchase. And the crowds? To their credit, they were dressed in proper attire, too, thanks to the appropriately striped shirts and berets that littered the crowd.

Damp conditions be damned, it remained a good, highly festive time — and a reminder that this proud neighborhood certainly boasts a certain je ne sais quoi.
