FRUITY FES­TI­VAL

Living France - - Découvrez -

When life gives France lemons, it makes the world-fa­mous Fête du Cit­ron fes­ti­val. Cre­ated in Men­ton in 1934, the event uses some 145 tonnes of citrus fruits to cre­ate a daz­zling dis­play of larg­erthan-life-sculp­tures and de­signs that are cre­ated by a team of 300 pro­fes­sion­als. A night pa­rade, along with a fire­works dis­play and a show en­ti­tled ‘Gar­den of Lights’ in the Jardins Biovès means that the event is all the more spec­tac­u­lar af­ter dark. Tak­ing place from 11 Fe­bru­ary to 1 March, the 84th edi­tion of the fes­ti­val is tak­ing on the theme of Broad­way, where songs from sing-along clas­sics like Mary Pop­pins and Sin­gin’ in the Rain will de­light the fes­ti­val’s 240,000 vis­i­tors. fete-du-cit­ron.com
