Lemon Festival - Event in Menton

Created in Menton in 1934, the Lemon Festival is a unique event in the world which draws over 230,000 visitors every year. It involves over 300 professionals and requires 145 tonnes of citrus fruits.

Floral processions are organised on the Promenade du Soleil, with a mixture of citrus-themed floats, confetti, dancers and folk groups. Displayed in giant floats, Citrus Limonia is saluted by entertainers, brass bands and other creatures full of divine charm. During the festival, the Biovès Gardens are clad with citrus fruit, forming temporary sculptures in dazzling yellow and orange shades. Some can reach heights of 10 metres and more. At nightfall, the orange and lemon monuments sparkle in their flamboyant colours, and night-time events are sometimes held.
