NewsRIVIERA FESTIVALS THIS SPRING
Since 1931, Mandelieu on the Côte d'Azur has been brightening its winters with the dazzling colours of mimosa. After the evening inauguration of the festival at the Chapelle “Notre Dame des Mimosas” and the crowning of the Queen of the Mimosa, the streets of the town centre and La Napoule are the setting for daytime and evening parades and corsos (flower parades with floats). A lively parade of musicians and magical floats will be held on the Saturday evening, while celebrations on the Sunday finish with the famous flower battle during which no fewer than 12 tons of flowers will be used.
The « Fête du Citron », a unique event in the world, attracts more than 200,000 visitors every year. For more than 15 days, come and enjoy the zest-flavored of Golden parades and Night-time parades (parades of citrus floats and animated by groups), admire the Exhibition of citrus patterns in the gardens Biovès (by day and/or night with the Gardens of lights); not forgetting to visit the Crafts Fair and the Festival of Orchids with unforgettable scents.
