The carnival is traditionally held across a two-week span in Nice on the French Riviera every February, and is considered a major tourist event for the city. The carnival tradition dates back to the Middle Ages, according to its official website. This year's event features 17 cinema-themed floats and a series of parades that will see a spectacular display of lights, flowers, musical bands and other visual entertainment.
