Golden Fruit Parades

 Dates : Sundays 17th, 24th february and 3th march 2019.
  Place : Promenade du Soleil (seafront).

High-energy parades and colourful celebration

On Sunday afternoon, come to the central focus of this unique event…

On Sunday morning, the town gets busy, with the coming and going of coaches and cars… Like an endless farandole, the crowd moves here and there, stretching out through the narrow streets and finally coming together along the sea front.

Today is festival day! Confetti is scattered against a background of blue sky. Entertainers, brass bands and folk groups wheel, spin and dance between the magnificent citrus fruit floats…

Meet on Sundays 17th, 24th February and 3th March 2019 from 2.30pm to 4pm on the promenade du soleil in Menton

For the exhibition of citrus patterns, several entrances are located along the Biovès gardens, as well as the gardens of lights.

Systematic inspections will be carried out at each entrance through metal detectors, bag inspections and “physical pat-down”.

Deposits for your bags and objects are at your disposal before entering in the area. Any object purchased in the gardens or at the salon of crafts must be sealed in a bag during the purchase in order to be admitted to one of the enclosures. If not, it must be deposited.
