Jumping for La Fête du Citron

🇫🇷 Menton, france,

On a cool day of February, we attended the famous Fête du Citron (a.k.a. the Lemon Festival) in Menton, between Monaco and the Italian border. Well, when I say it is famous, I mean that everybody in Menton knows about it.

Concept is rather simple: let's build houses, garden decorations and floats made of lemons and oranges!

Should you wonder where this tradition comes from, it was introduced in the 19th century as a tourist trap attraction. At that time, wealthy tourists used to flock the south of France (and especially the Riviera) during the cold months of winter in search of a nicer weather (see wikipedia for more background).
