Jardin des Plantes lantern festival will be back for the 4th edition in the winter 2022. This lit walk is always a success during the Holidays and a must! Although the dates of the event are not known yet, the theme has been announced: The World of Minuscule in Large. From November 2022 to January 2023, discover insects and little beasts in XXL versions for an exclusive and playful stroll created in partnership with China Light Festival.
This is a very successive event with a theme changing every year. For the previous editions, passersby enjoyed the Evolution en voie d'Illumination, in 2021, attracting 330,000 visitors. And the previous editions took visitors to Océan en voie d'illumination and Espèces en voie d'illumination.
This winter 2021, people traveled back in time through 500 million years of the life history to discover now-gone species. Unlike the previous ones, this edition shone a light on extincted and little-known species most of them having never cohabited with men. This nighttime stroll invited you to experience evolution through time. On the menu, a hundred never-before-seen monumental structures, some are even almost 30-meter long.
(Re)discover this stroll by night that turns into an atypical experience to enjoy with friends and family to discover the monumental light structures set in the alleys and on the pitches of the Jardin des Plantes.
All in all, dozens of monumental light structures were to be discovered all along our walk, staging different universes. Dive into the ocean or dinosaurs' fantastic universe. The route was paced with descriptive texts telling us more about the different animal species.
Finish your tour within the Jardin des Plantes menagerie where lovely and hand-painted lanterns light up the path.
