Enthusiasm and a zest of extravagance

A spark of splendour to the parade worthy of the most ambitious street festival

Until dusk, the town seems to hold its breath…It’s all very peaceful, too peaceful…

In the distance, some drums show a touch of impatience, a trumpet replies… A float loaded with citrus fruit appears from nowhere, then another…

Time to party! Brass bands, orchestras, folk groups, dancers and the plain mischievous add a spark of splendour to the parade worthy of the most ambitious street festivals!

In apotheosis fireworks at 10.30pm

Suddenly, the first explosions ring out and light up the night above Menton.
The crackle of the sparks as they fall into the sea signals the end of this moment of extravagance.

All the Fête du Citron® events (golden fruit parades, night-time parades, exhibition of citrus patterns and the gardens of Lights) take place in secured and enclosed areas.

Only children under 6 years are exempted from an entry pass, on the condition that they be accompanied by an adult in possession of one of the entrances afore mentioned.

During the golden fruit parades and the night-time parades, in order to improve the flow of access, entrances will be distributed along the area.

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”.

It is advised to arrive at least an hour before the event, and to carry only a minimum of necessary objects in your possession.

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.

It is prohibited to enter the enclosure with :

• Large suitcases or bags
• Disguises that could lead to confusion
• Weapons, even artificial ones
• Blunt, sharp or pointed objects
