Living France - - DÉCOUVREZ -

The flower fes­ti­val Bormes-les-Mi­mosas ( right) cel­e­brates the tra­di­tion of grow­ing flow­ers on the Riviera, which dates back hun­dreds of years. On 28 Fe­bru­ary, in the old­est part of the vil­lage, a dozen floats, beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated in fresh flow­ers, in­clud­ing 12 tonnes of yel­low mi­mosa and 80,000 other va­ri­eties are pa­raded through the streets to the de­light of the crowds, which num­ber around 12,000 peo­ple. The floats go past ac­com­pa­nied by brass bands and the day ends with the tra­di­tional flower bat­tle. bormeslesmi­mosas.com
