Carnival in Nice Under High Security

Carnival revelers in the city of Nice, France, will celebrate under high security this year, for the first time in living memory parading down a route other than the traditional Promenade des Anglais. One of the most popular carnivals in the world, renowned for attracting up to a million partygoers, the Nice Carnival will this year take place along a new route, the Promenade du Paillon, as the city attempts to cast off the pall of terrorism that struck on Bastille Day last year, France24 reported. The change of route is in response to stringent security measures that have been implemented since the terror attack that killed 86 people in Nice on July 14, 2016. “Never has the level of security been so high for an event of this kind in Nice,” top regional administrator, Georges-Francois Leclerc, told a news conference ahead of the February 11-25 carnival. Some 200 police will man 36 entry points to the venue, which will be totally enclosed for the event.
