Bathed in light

Living France - - Découvrez -

The streets, build­ings, squares and parks of Lyon will be a blaze of light for three days for the an­nual Fête des Lu­mières. From 5-8 De­cem­ber, thou­sands of visi­tors from all over the world will marvel at more than 70 elab­o­rate sound and light dis­plays. The fes­ti­val has grown out of the tra­di­tional cel­e­bra­tion of the Feast of the Im­mac­u­late Con­cep­tion, and across the city the res­i­dents of Lyon put can­dles on their win­dow sills and bal­conies as they have done for decades. The can­dles are pro­tected by lit­tle glass shades and in their thou­sands they suf­fuse the city in a warm yel­low light as Christ­mas ap­proaches. www.fet­edes­lu­
