Banks of the Saône

Banks of the Saône, Lyon 2

Une rivière de lumières


Sunday from 7 pm onwards


River of Light evokes the traditional candle-lit processions which took place along the River Saône dating back to the Middle Ages. When night falls on December 8, 20,000 tiny illuminated boats will sail down the river, giving the finishing touch to the light displays on the banks and taking Lyon back to its historic roots. Also inspired by Indian folklore, the floating lights each convey a message from a spectator*, a glowing note of hope travelling downriver between the Saint Vincent and Saint Georges footbridges.
