The annual Nice Carnival on the French Riviera is in full swing. In case you missed it here's a look at some of the best photos from the event including puppets of Donald Trump (squeezing a mini-Macron in his hand) and Vladimir Putin as evil clowns.

The 135th carnival runs February from 16th to March 2nd with this year's theme being the "King of Cinema".

Here's a look at some of the best photos from the parade, featuring some familiar faces with some unflattering makeovers.
