Every February, Menton, a scenic coastal town on the French Riviera, anchors the Fete du Citron (Lemon Festival). The wonderful event includes a sequence of exhibitions and parades featuring remarkable citrus fruit creations.
The Lemon Festival follows a subject every year. The transferable statues, scenes and carts of the parade are fully covered in lemons and other citrus fruits. They are the main feature of the festivity but there are also decorated gardens, streets, and light displays.
