King of the Five Continents

By Linda Tancs

One of the largest carvivals in the world, Nice’s carnival promises fun and frolic for 20 days along the French Riviera.  Celebrating universality, this year’s theme is “King of the Five Continents.”   The day and night carnival parades along Place Massena feature 18 colorful floats and papier mâché accompanied by street theatre and music groups from all over the world.  Couple that with the traditional flower parade along Promenade des Anglais and you have an unforgettable event where the Tournament of Roses meets Mardi Gras.  This year’s festival takes place from 15 February to 6 March.
