La fête du citron

From 17 February, the Lemon Festival in Menton will go to India to discover the colorful, rhythmic and delightfully kitschy Bollywood cinema. Energy, colors, rhythm, beauty and the sacred are some of the essential ingredients for the success of these films, ingredients that will inevitably be present at the 85th Lemon Festival.

Visit of the Biovès Gardens

From February 17 to March 4, 2018 open to the public Saturday, February 17 at 14h. In Bollywood cinema, the Hindu tradition is reflected by allusions to the sacred, so many divinities in India. The paths of the Biovès gardens will introduce you to this very special world where music, spirituality, the beauty of nature mingle with the everyday life of the heroes, help them to support their stories of thwarted love and the vicissitudes of life.

The Gardens of Lights

Saturday, February 17, Fridays, February 23 and March 2 from 8:30 pm. Les Jardins de Lumières is a nocturnal stroll in the citrus decorations that take, under artistic and artificial lighting, a dreamlike dimension. In the darkness, everything becomes propitious to dreams, to mystery: the colors burst forth and acquire a new poetry.

The Corsos: must-see parades

Sunday, February 18th, 25th and March 4th at 2:30 pm Thursdays, February 22nd and March 1st at 9pm. The Lemon Festival would not be what it is without its famous corsos. Appointments of day (every Sunday) as night (every Thursday) in a euphoric atmosphere and colorful. Tanks more surprising than each other will reveal the Bollywood universe on the rhythms and sounds of Indian dance and music.

A unique show where all the senses will be solicited! Thursdays at dusk, a grandiose fireworks concludes the parades.
