Well, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That saying has been one that I try to take seriously. There is a town in France that definitely takes this saying to heart. Notice the photos are from the Menton, France website.

Every year in February the Lemon Festival (FĂȘte du Citron) takes place in Menton, a city of just over 28,000 residents on the French Riviera. Menton is the lemon capital of France and the Festival is a celebration of all things related to that small yellow fruit.During the festival large constructions made of lemons and oranges parade down the streets and huge citrus fruit sculptures are built.This year Menton is hosting the 75th Lemon Festival.
