Together through light
Do you miss being in Lyon during this year’s Lyon Light Festival Forum and seeing all the lights or “lumignons” illuminating the windows of the city on 8 December?
Light a candle or “Lumignon” in your own window and send us a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org before the 8th of December!
A few lucky winners will receive a goodie bag from Lyon!
You can also show your support for the city by purchasing an e-lumignon as part of the Lumignons du Coeurs initiative.
And don’t forget to join us for the Lyon Light Festival Forum online! We will share a collage of all your lumignon photos connecting everyone through light!
Lumignons du Coeurs
In remembrance of the origins of the Festival of Lights, the city appeals to the citizens of Lyon and visitors on December 8 every year to show their generosity by contributing to the Lumignons du Cœur (Candles from the Heart) campaign. The City of Lyon invites you to buy your virtual candle: profit will entirely be donated to « Les Petits Frères des Pauvres (Little brothers of poor people) » charity organization. Their objective is to fight social isolation and loneliness of elderly people.
