Nice Carnival 2019, the King of Cinema 06000 Nice fr

The theme of Nice's 2019 Carnival is "King of Cinema". 


Nice will celebrate in 2019 the 100th anniversary of the Victorine Studios, the Mecca of the film industry on the Côte d'Azur.

 

The 2019 edition of the Nice Carnival, as usual, will be made up of two distinct spectacles: the Carnival Parade (or the Corso Carnavalesque), which will continue from the daytime into the night, and the Bataille de Fleurs. 

Storytelling and burlesque floats will process through the Place Masséna, accompanied by a mix of street arts shows and mini-concerts by international music groups. These parade floats all have a celebratory air, as if embarking on maiden voyages. 

Flowers Galore

With a magnificent view over the Mediterranean Ocean, the elegance of the Bataille de Fleurs evokes the natural heritage of the region. The floral theme will also be incorporated into the costumes of models, who will be distributing thousands of petals to the audience. 

Alongside these festivities, Carnival time presents a marvelous opportunity to discover Nice in wintertime: the mild climate, the brightness of the Mediterranean sky, and an art de vivre totally unique to the Côte d'Azur.
