    Cannes hosts a spectacular carnival.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "Where the sun is shining. Cannes - concludes carnival season on the Riviera."

    Cannes, France

    M/S large carnival floats proceed through crowded street. The floats depict various scenes from history, and various animals, elephants, monkeys etc. Some people dance 'ring a ring a roses', within the procession, in costumes. One float depicts a monkey figure with organ grinders turning wheels. People with huge heads and powdered wigs carrying large scissors for cutting.

    Note: it's difficult to make out the themes - but it could be based on fairy stories.
