Fêtes des lumières à Lyon (Festival of Lights)
For 4 days each year a few weeks before Christmas, Lyon becomes one of the brightest and liveliest cities in France. Millions of people crowd the streets to experience the Festival of Lights.
Buildings become canvases for dancing projections that play upon the architectural design, telling stories and showing off different artistic pursuits. Savory scents saturate the air as vendors rush to sell hot wine, chocolate and food. No matter where you wander you will most likely see a light show or some fireworks.
