Bastille En Vogue 

The streets of Soulard will be under mob rule this weekend as the masses salute the red, white and blue -- of France — with a two-day celebration marking Bastille Day, the French Independence Day. At 5 p.m. Friday, July 10, the "gathering of the mob" parade congregates at Howards in Soulard (2732 South 13th Street). When the King and Queen of France appears, the masses (in period costumes, preferably), rise against the aristocracy and force the royal couple to meet their end at Pontiac Park, where jubilation, spirits and cake await. At 6 p.m. Sunday, July 12, at Franco (1535 South Eighth Street; 314-542-0400 or www.eventbrite.com),the revolution gets fancy with Bastille en Vogue, a fashion show with a whimsical take on period dress. The evening includes beer, wine and appetizers while you marvel at the designs by Luann Carmody Denten. The gathering of the mobs is free, while admission to Bastille en Vogue costs $25.
