Côte d'Azur: the Fête du Citron® in Menton Avenue Boyer 06500 Menton fr

For this year's theme, the Menton Fête du Citron® (Lemon Festival) goes Indian and dives into the colorful, rhythmic and deliciously whimsical world of Bollywood.

Energy, color, rhythm, beauty, and religion are just some of the elements vital to these films, the spirit of which the 85th Fête du Citron®, running from February 17 to March 4, 2018, intends to honor.

Technicolor

One of the highlights of the festival is the Les Jardins de Lumières (Gardens of Light) evening event hosted in the Biovès gardens: a spectacle of light and color that creates a unique world of fantasy. In the darkness, everything becomes dreamlike and mysterious in an explosion of color.

 

But, the crown jewel of the Fête du Citron® is its famous fruit-themed corso processions. These daytime (every Sunday) and night-time carnivals (every Thursday) amaze audiences with their euphorically colorful creations, with the Thursday night carnivals culminating in a grand firework display. Every float, each more spectacular than the last, will embody the world of Bollywood, showcasing its music and dance. The festival is a unique spectacle that thrills every sense.
