No one stormed the barricades that kept vehicles from entering Larchmont Avenue from the Boston Post Road to Addison Street for Bastille Day in the Village of Larchmont on July 14.
Instead, hungry patrons lined up civilly at outdoor booths set up by Auray, Wasabi, España and other food vendors. Children shouted and sang along with entertainers provided just for them.
Shoppers wandered into stores kept open for the evening or patronized stalls set up on the avenue. Trustees from the Village of Larchmont got into the spirit by selling red, white and blue t-shirts declaring: Vive Larchmont!
