On the occasion of the end of the year festivities, the "city of Lemon" is transformed, is adorned with a thousand and one new lights and opens the way to a new dimension, reserved for families, young and old, daydreaming and escape. From one street to another in the city, surprises are indeed at the rendezvous and invitations to astonishment. So swirl on the frozen lake, a giant ice rink installed in front of the Halles market. Take the reindeer trail that crosses Menton. Stroll among the elves in the enchanted forest of Biovès gardens. Fill your hood in the merchant chalets of the village of Santa Claus. Bastion mailbox. Accompany the Three Kings on the path of cribs.

For four weeks, Menton turns the pages of an open air Christmas story: shows, merry-go-round, workshops and street entertainment ... A guaranteed change of scenery for young and old. Quickly discover the entire program of the festivities. Merry Christmas to everyone !
