The Lemon Festival is an annual event held on the Saturday preceding Ascension Sunday, at the end of May.
It is celebrated with a contest for the biggest local lemon. There is also a contest of shop windows decorated with lemons, as well as live music throughout the day.
There was lemon giveaways and tasting of all sorts of lemon products available.
We had a tasty lemon gelato - yum!
Located in the old town area of Monterosso.
From the train station, walk through the tunnel, or up around the headland to get to the old town.
