The Mimosa Festival is a large popular celebration organised in February every year. The festivities last for a week and its main attractions are floral floats during weekends. 

The mimosa flower which was imported from Australia at the end of the 19th century flourished in the gardens of the British aristocrats on the French Riviera. It enjoyed the mild climates of the South of France and it is now celebrated as part of the local culture and economy in the Cannes region. 

The event attracts thousands of enthusiastic spectators who come to admire the floats and catch sprigs of mimosa that are thrown from them.
