Each year in February, Menton helds ‘Fête du Citron’ / Lemon Festival. Each year, there is a different theme of the festival but all that we’ve seen so far are equally amazing. This year, the festival theme’s was Broadway.
We participated in a parade with all the giants charts, artists, dancing groups and tons of confetti !!! 😉
Then we visited the gardens to admire all the sculptures made of lemon and oranges.
Hard to say, which one was the best, they were all gorgeous. Amazing work done by all the people participating in making these masterpieces!
We have also visited the Orchid’s exhibition that takes place each year in the Palais de l’Europe, just beside the gardens where the lemon and orange sculptures are. There, there is also a local market with a possibility to taste and also buy delicious foods. Our favorite is the lemon oil!
