La Fete des Lumières

We visit the Festival of Lights in the French city of Lyon. It's a 4 day event that attracts more than four million visitors every year. The celebrations evolved from a religious tradition in which citizens lit candles to mark the inauguration of a Virgin Mary statue at the city’s hilltop Basilica. The event is now Europe's biggest "light show" featuring world-class artists.
