It’s carnival time on Cote d’Azur! Have you already visited the festivals? If not here are a few suggestion what you could do this weekend.
The arrival of spring to Nice is unimaginable without its traditional carnival and flower parade. Its 2020 theme is «The King of Fashion» with the most colourful scenery, huge inflatable sculptures, live music and tons of confetti. Are you ready to take part in its fragrant battle of flowers? Or enjoy a scenic night «corso» parade? Then head to the Masséna Square in Nice and get ready for tons of fun!
Menton and lemons are inseparable. Not only is this fragrant fruit cultivated in the city, but the annual festival featuring giant lemon and orange sculptures seems to bring them to life. The Lemon Festival in Menton that starts this week traditionally hosts fruit parades, light shows, street animations and fairs.
