Сitrus Carnival on the Riviera

In citrus carnival, which takes place in the French town of Menton, the world is unique.

Like during other carnivals, the streets are crowded with people, giant figures, holiday carts, and decorations. But unlike the other carnival, all of this holiday is decorated with lemons and oranges – more than 130 tons of citrus is used to beautify the city and this carnival.

This carnival is held from the 30s of the 20th century, the second largest carnival and renown on the Riviera after the carnival in Nice. Every time lemon carnival is dedicated to a specific topic.
