Nice carnival

 

The signature event on the French Riviera in winter and one of the world's biggest carnivals, offering a programme packed with unforgettable entertainment... from the 17th of February to the 03rd  of March 2018.

The carnival processions, comprising 16 floats work their way up to a crescendo of gigantic celebrations on the Place Masséna.

These giant, colourful parades take place day and night, with entertainment provided by over 1,000 musicians and dancers from across the world.

In a unique setting, the elegant "flower battles" are part of the carnival not to be missed. On floats decorated with the most stunning floral compositions, extravagantly dressed characters throw out mimosas, gerberas, and lilies into the public …

For over 15 days, the city hums to the rhythm of this genuine, fairy-tale event … get a passport for the celebration and let the magic do its work … come and forget the dullness of winter and take in the sun on the French Riviera!
