Driving Carcassone to Arles, Bastille Day Weekend

Am planning out a 4-night stay near Arles over Bastille/National Day weekend this July, coming from Carcassone and have a few questions. We'll tentatively being driving to Arles on Sat the 12th, then spend the next 4 nights in that area doing day trips to Nimes/Pt du Gard, Isle-sur-La-Sorgue/etc, and then taking the TGV from Avignon to Paris. What can I expect in the way of traffic/time to get to Arles from Carcassone (3 hrs?), and then in/around Arles over those days? I've read about big traffic headaches in South France in July, but am not sure if that's more towards the coast and/or Nice, etc. Wish we could come a week or two earlier, but that will be tough.

Thanks for the input!

Sorry, forgot to ask about festivities in/around Arles on Fete National - can we plan on "celebrating" in Arles w/fireworks, etc?
