  • (1888PressRelease) May 10, 2010 - - Sundays in May is a special day for the people of Nice and thousands of visitors from the neighbouring areas and further out. This is the month where they celebrate the long and colourful history of this beautiful sea-side resort city in the south of France with countless free events held throughout the day. Already popular with sun seekers, art aficionados, history buffs and discerning diners in search of Michelin- approved cuisine, visitors are advised to book early for their Nice hotels that would certainly run into high occupancy in May.

    Nice's Maytime Fetes is held annually in the Arčnes de Jardins de Cimiez with many exciting performances ranging from traditional dance, musical concerts, family friendly activities and other entertaining activities as part of the celebration. It is actually a modern interpretation of a more pagan festival that started hundreds of years ago to welcome spring and honour the Earth Goddess. The local people used to cut down pine trees and decorate them with flowers as part of the celebration. This tradition continues till today accompanied by more modern types of entertainment.
