Menton, a town on the French Riviera, is famous for its beautiful gardens, but it also has a magnificent citrus festival each year.

Because of its amazing warm micro-climate, this town is nicknamed ‘the pearl of France’, and oranges and lemons thrive here. The festival celebrates these fruits, with a wonderfully colourful parade. The parades also have themes, like “Viva Espana”, Disney, Neverland, and India.
