Lyon, France: The Light Show

Light Show in Lyon

Lyon, the other great city of France, pulls out all the stops for the Fête des Lumières. Dating back to 1643, the annual light festival taking place near December 8th started with the residents of Lyon lighting candles in their windows and giving offerings in the name of Mary.

Fast forward to the 21st century, Fête des Lumières is one of the largest outdoor events in Europe with over four million people attending the four-day weekend in December. Tech and lighting artists are invited from all over the world to create new works just for the festival. Lyon is now one of the leading cities in the world in terms of light and light show technology.

There are light displays in every nook and cranny of Lyon, including churches, along the river, in the old town, squares, parks, tunnels and inside office towers. There are also very sophisticated illuminations on sides of buildings, some with sound effects or soundtracks.

In addition to Fête des Lumières, Lyon has great culture, museums, and music venues plus some of the best restaurants in France with enough Michelin star restaurants to rival Paris. It gets booked up far in advance so if you are thinking of going, best to make plans now. Big thanks to Richard Nahem (words/photography) Details on the festival here:www.fetedeslumieres.lyon.fr/en
