Lemon Festival: French residents erect giant structures with lemons and oranges

Ever seen a house made of oranges and lemons?

Residents in Menton, France are giving us an eyeful of this as the Fête du Citron (Festival of Lemons) has seen giant structures erected completely with oranges and lemons.

The festival is in its 83rd year and sees about 240,000 troop out to view the citrus structures which are erected in the town’s park, Jardins Biovès.

According to Mashable, the masterpieces are composed of more than 290,000 pounds of fruit.

This year’s festival is themed “Cinecittà“, a nod to the legacy of Italian film and the structures are almost exact replicas of scenes from Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, Amarcord Tourjansky’s Cleopatra, among others.
