The floats created on the theme will parade during the Carnival parade (Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays), accompanied by the traditional “big heads” and artists from all around the world in a festive and popular atmosphere, and beautifully designed to revisit the history of fashion, to make you laugh, smile but also reflect on fashion and its hidden side.

Because if fashion launches trends and changes codes and behaviors, it also has an ethical and responsible role to play.

Come and discover the other highlight of the Carnival on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons: the Flower Parades where the theme will be declined on floats decorated with flowers promoting local production (80% of the flowers are produced in the region) and driven by actresses who will wear costumes specially designed for the event. A unique parade in the world where thousands of flowers will be distributed.

And don’t forget, for adults and children disguised from head to toe, the carnival parades will be free!

So come and live the Nice carnival from 15 to 29 February 2020 in Nice.
