San Remo: the Flowers Parade “Sanremo in Fiore” on Sunday, 8th March 2015
The famous Flowers Parade is a long procession of floats decorated with millions of flowers with all the colors of the rainbow, embellished with various original effects.
During the Flowers Parade every city of the Italian Riviera presents an original composition of flowers displayed on a Carnival/Mardi-Gras style moving car. This year the main theme will be “the bycicle”, to celebrate the official start of the cycling Giro d’Italia that will be in San Remo in May.
In addition to the main event 4 bands are in the programme: the band ‘City of Sanremo’, the ‘Sing and Sciuscia’, the ‘Rambaldi’ and ‘Morozzese’. There will be nine groups that alternate the floats, moreover flag-wavers of Ventimiglia. Among the groups, many Italians and four foreigners from Holland, France, Spain and Estonia, the latter on roller skates. Together with the groups, that will parade in the city center along with some bands, there will be also the parade of 500 vintage Vespa and Fiat 500 along the waterfront.
It is a truly intense experience, surrounded by the most beautiful scents and flowers of the Riviera!
