Menton has just finished celebrating 80 years of the Festival de Citron, and so of course the theme of the celebrations just had to be Jules Verne's "Around the World in Eighty Days". Alongside each structure sculpted from thousands of oranges and lemons was a quotation from the famous journey of Phileas Fogg and Passepartout...Just remember everything you are about to see is made entirely from citrus fruit!! You can follow in Fogg's footsteps from India....
.....to New York
.....all aboard the different forms of transport used by the travelling pair to win their bet...
Happy 80th birthday Menton - a festival not to be missed!! Enjoy!
