An explosion of fun, frolic and colour.

As night falls, a fabulous parade of floats with over a thousand gorgeously costumed revellers sets off from Place Bir-Hakeim en route for Place des Cocotiers. Fifteen to thirty thousand spectators are expected to throng the streets to watch the pageant. Raid your dressing-up box and join the fun! The festivities will end in style with a lavish firework display.
