Every year Menton is a place of holding the “Fete du Citron” carnival, also known as Lemon Festival. Thousands of lemons and their sisters oranges are used to build different creative sculptures and mosaics to celebrate this festival. Here you can see some of the amazing photos from preparation for this years Lemon Festival in Menton. The festival starts in February and will last for a few days.

As you can see, every sculpture has some motive from movies and that is because this year’s theme of the festival is “Menton does cinema”.
