Due to the recent and tragic events in Paris, the Festival of Lights cannot take place the usual way.

The City of Lyon has decided to move this year's program up to December 2016. This year, we invite you to stand united and solidary as we light up candles and illuminate the city, on December 8, in a tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris.
