If Mardi Gras revelry was not enough, celebrants can enjoy two other traditional festivals on the Côte d'Azur honoring local products- Menton's famous lemon and the Mimosa Festival in Mandelieu la Napoule.
|Menton Lemon Festival|
This year marks the 80th anniversary of the Menton Lemon Festival, one of the French Riviera most popular events. For two weeks in February, this pretty sunny town on the border of France and Italy celebrates the local citrus with parade floats and giant artistic arrangements made of the yellow and orange fruits.( February 16-March 16). http://www.fete-du-citron.com/
