This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the Carnaval de Nice. 2019’s theme is Roi du Cinema. Held in the Place Massena, the day and nighttime programs holld one spellbound.
The night-time parade, Corso carnavalesque illumine, featured caricatures of politicians, and cinema greats. Amazing dancers performed throughout the parade, and the lighting effects were spectacular.
During the day there is the Bataille de Fleurs; beautiful floats and dancers going round and round the parade route. Why, you might ask? Because the flowers off the floats are thrown into the stands, to be grabbed and taken home as a remembrance.
Each parade lasts just over two hours. I can’t wait to find out next year’s theme; and I definitely plan to attend. I ❤️ Nice, and loved the Carnaval.
