The light festival was originally a religious festival, dating from the 19th century. It takes place around the 8th of December every year and has become an unmissable event for the people of Lyon as well as many other people who come to admire the city during the festival. Every year almost 4 million visitors flood into the city to enjoy the famous evening shows.
As well as the numerous displays that are set up all around the city, the festival is characterised by the strength of the participation of the people of the city, who put lamps (fluted candles in coloured glass holders) in their windows to light up their houses.
