THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS LYON FRANCE DEC 2013


The Festival of Lights is probably the most popular as well as the most established event in Lyon occurs on December 8th. Lanterns adorn balconies and windows and streets a full of performers making the event quite a visionary display. Different events are organised in the different quarters. The Festival of Lights began around 150 years ago at the time when statue of the Virgin Mary was erected on Fourviere Hil and unveiled.

As well as the buildings being lit up, there is usually a theme and full displays of colours and light are everywhere. Take the time to explore the city, both in the afternoon (for shopping fun!) and then enjoy the colour and life of Lyon at night.
