The fight of the 'fleurs'

The Annual flower carnival at Villefranche-sur-Mer in France involves a Naval Battle like no other!

It is a naval battle with a difference, on the shores of the Mediterranean in southern France.

The ammunition is flowers - bunches of mimosa and carnations to be precise.

Thousands gathered in Villefranche-sur-Mer near Nice on Monday for the annual event dating back more than a century.

While locals in boats do the throwing, spectators do the catching. They rarely retaliate but love the floral fiesta.
