Decorations and Illuminations

Huge panels illustrating the Carnaval theme are raised all around Place Masséna, behind tribunes and mounted on posts facing surrounding buildings so they can be removed in the event of high winds. Along with festive garlands on avenue Jean Médecin, thousands of multicoloured lights begin twinkling in Place Masséna as soon as night falls, rivaling the starry night.

As Carnaval burns on the evening of Mardi Gras, the Castle Hill (just east of the Promenade des Anglais and Old Nice) will also light up with countless Bengal lights magnifying the splendour of the fireworks over the sea.
