By Staff Writer - February 18, 2019

Fete du Citron is an annual lemon festival held along the coast from Nice, in the town of Menton.

Held at the same time as the Lent carnival, the Lemon Festival is a celebration of this citrus fruit. The festival runs until 3rd March.

Floats made from lemons and other citrus fruits are paraded down the streets of Menton, accompanied by dancers in fancy dress, music and drums.

Nice, Coote D'Azur

It’s quite a sight and once the parades are done, the town gathers itself for one big street party, with concerts and fireworks.

Around 160,000 visitors from around the globe will descend upon the town to celebrate their most important fruit! Tickets to watch the processions are available online.
