  5. Oh My. Did you know they do this same kind of thing in South Dakota using ears of corn?

    Look at this:

    Scroll down and look at some of the videos of the palace decorated in different years. Absolutely stunning to see in person, as your Fete du Citron is.

  7. Bergson, les citrons viennent d'Espagne, parce qu'ils sont moins chers que les citrons de Menton mais aussi parce que le citron de Menton est précieux. Il est maintenant une variété reconnue, plutôt que le vin est reconnu.

    Abe, that corn festival is amazing as you say.

  8. How in the world do "they" assemble the castle without it falling down? I'll bet the bees appreciate the people that are doing the assembly. :-)

  13. The images they make from wire and citrus fruit is amazing. It reminds me in a way of what they do with flowers for floats for the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California. Thanks for sharing your pictures.

  14. A regional theme for this annual festival makes a lot of sense. The scale of the castle is marvelous.
