Carnival Parades

17 floats decorated on a cinema theme will parade to the rhythm of street art and musical bands from all around the world in a colourful and festive atmosphere.

An emblematic Carnival venue, the place Masséna, will be the starting point for the Carnival parades which will turn around the Albert 1er gardens in a loop. On the square, visual entertainment will be relayed on giant screens for the delight of young and old spectators.

Flower Parades

Every year, costumed models parade on flower-covered floats and throw a hail of flowers to the public. The flower parade or "battle" represents a unique show renowned on the French Riviera.


The origins of this event go back to 1876 when the first flower parade tok place along the Promenade des Anglais. We owe its creation to Andriot Saëtone. At the beginning it was a simple exchange of flowers to entertain tourists but the idea quickly took on and was developped to pay tribute to the local flower producers.

From 2005 on, the flower parades share the same theme as the carnival parades.

Today, this event highlights the wide diversity of flowers in our region as 80% of flowers used are produced locally.
