Amidst celebrating Nice Carnaval and the Mimosa Festival in the Cote D’Azur, the seaside city of Menton is celebrating its 79th annual Fête du Citron, to be held from February 17 to March 7, 2012. Menton has gained an international fame due to this fest, which is often called "the City of Lemons." Attracting over 250,000 people each year, the 2012 theme of this unique Lemon Festival will be Welcoming the French Regions. To celebrate the regions of France, citrus-sculptures will depict different aspects of the country, such as an Eiffel Tower for Paris. Parade floats will depict the regions as well, illustrating Burgundy as an escargot, and boasting creole cuisine and culture from the overseas regions of France.
