Navy Seals Help Celebrate Las Vegas' Bastille Day

Posted: Jul. 16th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

With sequester kicking "unnecessary expenditures" hard in the teeth and grounding airshows all across the United States, it's rather ironic that a French holiday will see Navy Seals and Parachutists ramping up celebrations in Las Vegas. The event is centered on the Marché Bacchus French Bistro and Wine Shop, and promises to be quite a spectacular showing.

Parachutists and a team of Navy Seals will join forces Sunday to help the Marché Bacchus French Bistro and Wine Shop celebrate Bastille Day.

Between 5:30 and 6 p.m., members of the Vegas Extreme Skydiving team will be making a jump into Lake Jacqueline, on which the restaurant sits in the northwest part of Las Vegas. A group of Navy Seals will then pull the skydivers from the water.

The bistro will continue the celebration of the French national holiday, which commemorates the start of the French Revolution on July 14, 1789, as owner Jeff Wyatt uses a special saber to slice the tops off several bottles of Champagne.
