Flashback to the 2022 edition
On Saturday 26 February 2022, the last Illuminated Carnival Corso took place on the Place Masséna in Nice. At the end of the parade, the traditional incineration of His Majesty Carnival closed the festivities and the reign of the “King of Animals”.
The mayor of Nice, Christian Estrosi, gave an initial assessment of the event, with almost 107,000 spectators attending the events. 15 carnival floats and 17 flower battle floats paid tribute to the animals. Nearly 40 troupes from France and Europe performed on the Place Masséna.
It was during this last parade that the Mayor of Nice announced the theme of the next edition: the Nice Carnival, King of the World’s Treasures.
