Nice Carnival

I will be in Nice at the same time as the Carnival season and would like to watch the flower and evening parades. I've looked at the Nice Carnival website and it says that you have to buy tickets. Does anyone know if you can watch the carnival parades without having to pay to go into the 'ticketed' arena? Thanks.

Yep, you can see the carnival from along the route, but you should get there early to get a good vantage point. Otherwise, you might have to hang from a lamp post to see, as I did one year.

The tickets are for the bleachers, where you can sit comfortably and get a better view and hear what the announcer is saying. Also, all of the groups participating in the parade will stop at the bleachers and perform. Some will perform along the way as well, but you only get the "complete show" if you are in the bleachers.
