Today marks Bastille Day, and celebrations were on show for much of Auckland last night after a barrage of explosions rang out over the CBD. The fireworks display about 6.30pm was part of the Renault French Festival being held at Queens Wharf over four days from July 11 to 14 and was in celebration of Bastille Day.
