Fête du Citron: Corso - Pirates!


All the acts parade around the 3 kilometre circuit, stopping every 100 yards or so to perform. The pirates were great fun - much banging of drums, a sword fight which naturally the girl won to great applause! And a Johnny Depp (sort-of) lookalike too.

  2. The photo just makes things look great. I guess because they isolate and focus on one thing at a time.

  7. Shiver me timbers, is the best way to describe these marvellous shots.
    I reckon that I had better arrive a month earlier.
    Fête du Citron is brilliant, Jilly.
    Perhaps we could present an Australian contribution to the Festival, (to rival the Brazilians).
    I'm sure we have bigger lemons in Oz?
