This fall, marvel at the animals in the Jardin des Plantes during the first “Festival des Lumières”! Enjoy a crisp evening stroll among the gigantic and luminous animal “structures.”
From November 16 until January 15, the Jardin des Plantes presents an evening exhibition that will enlighten the conscience of young and old.
Start the course at Valhubert Square with spectacular lanterns depicting creatures that disappeared 65 million years ago: immense light structures of several meters made in China by China Light Festival, specialist in Chinese lanterns.
Discover extinct or endangered species under the pressure of human civilizations; animals who have disappeared because of humans and those currently threatened with extinction such as the mammoth, polar bear, American bison, white shark, etc.
This festival of unusual light is also dotted with live shows on the theme of nature and workshops for children who can even build and decorate their own lantern.
