Menton’s Lemon Festival

Steve Waller sent me some photos from the Menton website which have a certain appeal to me, being a Lemmons myself. I had no idea that there is a LEMON FESTIVAL each year in France. These displays are made with lemons, oranges, and grapefruits.

Apparently MENTON is a charming town full of mystery located at the French-Italian border right on the coast. Surrounded by mountains, Menton is protected from winds and benefits from a wonderful weather.

Menton was founded on the Comtes of Vintimiglia domain. Menton belonged to Grimaldi family (Monaco) from 1346 till 1848, and on the 2nd February 1861 officialy became French.

We may see more photos in the future. Here is the site: http://menton.com/
