Once again, magic is at the heart of this ever-changing attraction! Visitors can admire the luminous creature of the lake and bouquets of flaming flowers warming up the darkness! Everyone is encouraged to take part and support a good cause by buying the traditional candles. The story this year will appeal to all generations, as it covers the history of the Canuts, Lyon’s silk workers, buried treasure, the creation of the lake and the origins of the Festival of Lights. There's altruism and hope in this call to action and invitation to delight in the spectacle. This installation radiates a serene joy which everyone can share, with simplicity and authenticity.
