Background: The 88th annual Nice Carnival which was marked on Saturday (5 February) with a colourful procession through the centre of the town, this year featured a Japanese theme. This was highlighted by Japanese dancers, floats and dragons which paraded through the streets. The carnival marked the opening of the French resort's main holiday season. Each year it draws huge crowds into the streets as the atmosphere of Spring comes early to the Mediterranean city.
