    In this clip, I translated “corsi” below as parades (and this is confirmed in the next post). I assume that’s what it is based on the Festival’s own website. I am reminded of Rio’s Blocos and other carnivale parades globally that have floats, sculptures, and parades. What a party I imagine, Menton’s festival is definitely on my bucket list.
