Golden Fruit Parades

 Dates : Sundays 18th, 25th february and 4th march 2018.
  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 18th, 25th February and 4th March 2018 from 2.30pm to 4pm on the promenade du soleil in Menton
