La Fête du Citron - Carnival of the Children


Today is the first day of the Fete du Citron but yesterday, as always, it was the day Menton's children dress up, throw confetti and generally go bananas.  The Carnival of the Children is the best fun!

Aujourd'hui, c'est le premier jour de la Fête du Citron, mais hier, comme toujours, c'était le jour où les  enfants de Menton se déguisent, lancent  des confettis et s'amusent comme des fous. Le Carnaval des enfants est le plus grand des plaisirs!

  6. What joy! I remember getting trapped in the Laverie once when this carnival was going on. The clean-up was amazing too. The town has little trucks with huge vacuum hoses, and the ankle-deep confetti just disappeared - except from my hair and clothes and that of any other innocent bystander.
