    Background: Visnews filmed Jan 29 the annual carnival in Nice, which this year is held under the theme of "A Journey to the Moon".

    Floats made up to look like space ships paraded through the town, as large crowds showered confetti on the weird looking creatures in and around the floats.

    Inspired by "Sputniks", "Explorers" and "Lunik", King Carnival LXXV had surrounded himself with "moonmen" and attractive "space-women".
