La Fete du Citron, or the Lemon Festival, is a unique and colorful event taking place in the French Riviera, and which attracts more than a quarter million visitors annualy. It is a 'fruity' celebration with daily parades of floats made of oranges and lemons. This makes for a colorful family outing followed by fireworks. The festival floats carry up to 140 tons of oranges and lemons, and for three weeks, the streets are taken over by 10 meter (33 feet) tall statues and structures made from - you guessed it - lemons and oranges only.
