Some people take lemons and make lemonade. But if you’re in Menton, a soothing seaside town just a lemon drop away from Italy, you make a party!
This picturesque town is known for its exceptional sunlight and the subtropical climate, making it ideal for growing orange and lemon trees. The fruits of the labor are displayed annually at this world famous festival, held over three weeks each February during Carnival season.
The Lemon Festival (Fete du Citron) has been held annually since the end of the 19th century and features exhibits, parades, fireworks, and more.
There is a fee for most of the activities. Check the site for up-to-date pricing and combination tickets.
It’s fun for the whole family and a zesty way to herald in springtime on the French Riviera.
