Mimosa Festival in Mandelieu-La Napoule - Côte d'Azur
Since 1931, Mandelieu on the Côte d'Azur has been brightening its winters with the dazzling colours of mimosa.
After the evening inauguration of the festival at the Chapelle “Notre Dame des Mimosas” and the crowning of the Queen of the Mimosa, the streets of the town centre and La Napoule are the setting for daytime and evening parades and corsos (flower parades with floats). A lively parade of musicians and magical floats will be held on the Saturday evening, while celebrations on the Sunday finish with the famous flower battle during which no fewer than 12 tons of flowers will be used.
This year, the Fête du Mimosa will celebrate the theme of Jules Verne.
