Imaginative floats and beauty queens make up the parade of the Mi-Careme Festival in France.
Full titles read: "Mi-Careme Festival - Business ceases and whole city turns out to greet beauty Queen of Queens at annual Mid-Lent revels."
Various shots show ornate floats moving through the streets of a French city as huge crowds line the streets to watch; several people walk along beside the floats. A good one shows two large model fishermen in a boat; a penguin stands at the bow to stare back at a polar bear standing on an iceberg. Another float looks like a marble staircase; some girls in fur-trimmed coats sit on the steps. C/U of one of the girls - she must be the Beauty Queen of Queens; she is wearing a fabulous 'twenties head-dress.
