Fête du Citron, Men­ton

Living France - - DÉCOUVREZ -

A glo­ri­ous abun­dance of cit­rus fruit fash­ioned into mag­nif­i­cent de­signs will form the cen­tre­piece of the an­nual du Citron, which is held ev­ery year in Men­ton ( pic­tured above). This year, from 13 Fe­bru­ary to 2 March, the 83rd Lemon Fes­ti­val will take the theme of Cinecittà: the dream and nos­tal­gia of Ital­ian cinema in the 1950s and 1960s. This ‘trip to Italy’ starts in the Jardins Biovès and con­tin­ues with a prom­e­nade through an eclec­tic col­lec­tion of sculp­tures all made out of or­anges and lemons by 300 pro­fes­sion­als. Around 240,000 vis­i­tors are ex­pected to join the fes­tiv­i­ties. fete-du-citron.com
