The Nice Carnival is back.  From February 13 to March 1  revelers welcome back the King and its court.   For two fun filled weeks, parades of flower bedecked floats accompanied by thousands of musicians  will snake along the coastal seafront on Promenade des Anglais and on Avenue Massena, loudly cheered by delirious crowds. This year  the "King of Music" is being  honored.  A parade 18 floats of giant figures made of colored paper-mache will rock, samba and salsa day and night in the streets of Nice . At the close of the carnival on March 1 the night sky will be illuminated by a giant firework display over the Mediterranean Sea.
