    High angle L/Ss of the main square in Nice; huge crowds of people watch as a large carnival procession travels around the square. Floats, people walking along wearing large animal costumes and fancy dress make up the parade. A huge model of a man with moving head riding a peacock is wheeled along; another float carries a dance band in costumes. A line of people walk along with large model heads; a float carries numerous people in pierot costumes, jumping up and down and dancing - it looks like good fun!
