French Bastille Day phrase

Just a quick Francophone question - I'd've posted it to multilingual, but I know this community better, and I'm asking for a cultural explanation as much as a translation.

So! My characters find themselves in France during Bastille Day. (Bastille Day, 1944, to be exact.) What salutations would the townspeople exchange? Just the simple French would be of immense help. I've tried searching for this on google ("bastille day greetings" "bastille day salutations"), but I've mostly gotten links to e-greetings sites, and my browser doesn't support java.
