Nice Carnival Parade 2012

Published April 14th, 2012

The nominal theme for our tour of Nice was Carnival! Honestly for Nancy and I it was pretty incidental. We had tickets to see the Carnival parade, and I was expecting that to be a bit of a drag. Instead, it turned out to be a highlight of the trip! The scale of the floats was amazing, both in size and satiric daring. A huge event, a lot of fun, and a good stress test for my camera.
