    Background: The Nice culminated in the 'Battle of the Flowers' after the best float had been chosen by the judges, Feb. 6. As soon as the word was given, thousands of flowers were ripped from the floats and flung at girls and musicians on the floats, at the corcrowd, at anyone within the range.

    This carnival is an international event. There was a float from Neuchatel, Switzerland, one from Charleroi, Belgium and another from Gothenburg, Sweden.

    Thousands of tourists joined in the 'free-for-all' and the carnival ended in true carnival mood- everyone laughing and shouting together as though they were old friends.
