A spark of splendour to the parade worthy of the most ambitious street festival

Until dusk, the town seems to hold its breath…It’s all very peaceful, too peaceful…

In the distance, some drums show a touch of impatience, a trumpet replies… A float loaded with citrus fruit appears from nowhere, then another…

Time to party! Brass bands, orchestras, folk groups, dancers and the plain mischievous add a spark of splendour to the parade worthy of the most ambitious street festivals!

In apotheosis fireworks at 10.30pm

Suddenly, the first explosions ring out and light up the night above Menton.
The crackle of the sparks as they fall into the sea signals the end of this moment of extravagance.
