The town just completed its 87th festival with the theme des mondes fantastiques or “Fantastical Worlds.” Each of the ten towering sculptures serves as a tribute to a different celebration from around the world, including Ireland’s St. Patrick’s Day, Mexico’s Día de los Muertos, Germany’s Oktoberfest. Over 200,000 people gathered to see the displays in Menton’s Jardins Biovès this year and to watch the Carnaval-style parades where they travel through town. When still-life and fashion photographer Philippe Jarrigeon visited this year, he described the festival as of another time. Menton doesn’t have the glitz or glam of Cannes and St. Tropez—and that can be a good thing. He looked forward to seeing a more traditional experience in an otherwise quiet town. Plus, as a still life photographer, he had often captured fruit and flower arrangements; this festival took that theme to new heights. “It was charming,” he noted. “The scene reminded me of France in the 1950s or in an old film.” After initially surveying the scene, Jarrigeon had planned to head back down to Menton from Paris for one of the festival’s parades, but the celebrations ended early because of the health threat posed by the coronavirus.
I wond I er how long this would’ve been televised if it were someone with a net worth of 60k a year, and 7 other blue-collar people. Call me heartless I don’t really care but people die every day in helicopter crashes and you only see maybe 1-minute clip on tv. Veterans die every day in this country and you wouldn’t see crap… sorry but it’s the truth. Why are people comparing his death to vets or anyone else? He was a good person who died tragically and that’s that. Blame fox news or any other media source for not honoring the fallen vets or anyone else you are referring to. I’d bet you probably didn’t even try raising awareness yourself about whatever story you’re even referring to. Kobe was a good player and I think we have taken it to far. Why does the NBA always compare great players against MJ? No one ever compares to Kobe as MJ was the foundation as LJ is also compared to MJ.
I hate that the NBA is doing all the dedication and change for Kobe but what will they do for Magic (5 rings), Kareem, Dr. J and even Better he great Michael Jordan who took time off to play baseball and came back to win again. What are we going to dedicate or rename awards after so many greats players before Kobe? I’m convinced he was a great basketball player. I would take much evidence to convince me he was a great person. Certainly, he went to great lengths to rehabilitate his image after what would have been a career-ending choice.
