THE FLOWER BATTLE, DURING THE CARNIVAL
A beautiful grand parade of floats through the city!
Like the carnival parade, the flower battle is an event not to be missed on the Côte d’Azur. Take part in this parade, mainly around the Albert 1st Gardens and Place Masséna, on Saturday and Wednesday afternoons. Mimosa, lilies, daisies, carnations, and roses are thrown… to the spectators come to enjoy the flower battle. Did you know? Most of these flowers come from the hills behind the Côte d’Azur. The flower battle is a unique event and has made the Nice Carnival famous. Costumed performers parade on floats decorated with flowers and hand out over 100,000 flowers to the public!
