A bit of history:

First of all, Lyon Festival of Lights is a religious celebration. It is the celebration of the Immaculate Conception also called Illuminations or even Virgin Mary celebration. In 1989, with the city of Lyon’s initiative, it becomes a popular and artistic event that exposes famous sites in Lyon with light games, video achievments, visual and hearing sensations.

This year, the city spreads 65 installations with lights, lasers, performing arts, video mapping and more, in 35 areas all over the Presqu’Île, Lyon Old Town, Terreaux Square and Parc de la Tête d’Or area.
