  • Description

    Menton, The Riviera, France.

    Various shots of the celebrations of the Feast of Oranges and Lemons. People wander about gardens and look at flower / fruit displays and a castle made out of oranges (and probably lemons). A large lemon (made from lemons) opens out while revolving on a turntable covered in fruit in the gardens.

    Girls riding on donkeys throw things to the crowds; other girls dance about. The best job for the girls seems to be sitting in a giant orange (covered with oranges, of course) and throwing things to the people watching. It is difficult to see just what they are throwing - segments of fruit or sweets perhaps?
