Traditional fireworks lit up the night sky near the Eiffel Tower on Sunday (July 14) as Parisians gathered under France's most beloved monument to celebrate Bastille Day.

Sparkles of red white and blue burst overhead as onlookers grooved to a mix of French songs, international dance numbers and even an occasional Bollywood tune thrown in.

The 'Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite'-themed display that lasted about thirty minutes cost the city 600,000 euros, local media reported.

Earlier in the day, French President Francois Hollande led France's annual Bastille Day military parade as French troops marched down the Champs Elysees and military jets streamed the national colours in the sky.
