Description

This is the hottest event of the Riviera winter and one of the largest carnivals in the world. The carnival processions, comprising 20 themed floats work their way up to a crescendo of gigantic decorations on the Place Masséna. The parade includes 30 in traditional paper mache figurines decked in dazzling colors with plenty of street theater and over 1,000 musicians and dancers from across the globe to keep you entertained. The famous “flower battles” on the Promenade des Anglais has floats decorated with stunning floral compositions and extravagantly dressed characters tossing local flowers like mimosas, gerberas, and lilies into the crowd. It is a part of the Nice Carnival that should not be missed. In the evening all the floats are illuminated and the evening parades light up the heart of Nice. Add some nice weather to the mix and you can see why there is not better place to shake off that winter cold than the Nice Carnival.
