74eme Fete du Citron
A fete or a carnival often get a
in Winifred Fortescue's books so there is every chance she may have seen the
famous citron festival held each year in Menton. It's a good excuse to show some
pictures from the event anyway!
The 74th Menton
Fete du Citron ran from the 17th February to the 7th March 2007. The
carnival style floats processes around the town centre each Sunday
afternoon and during the whole event there are gardens filled with
buildings and objects all made from thousands of oranges and lemons. Most
of the fruit is now imported from Spain as Menton is no longer the major
lemon growing region that it used to be. The theme for the 2007 Fete was
the Fete due Citron website.
