The lantern parade initially planned on Sunday November 29, 2020 at the Parc de la Villette is cancelled. With this beautiful and free show, Les Poussières theater company signs one of the most magical outings to enjoy this winter in Paris. A walk in music expects us with a cup of Christmas tea at the end.

Feel like experiencing a magical moment with friends a few weeks prior to Christmas? This Sunday November 29, 2020, head to the Parc de La Villette for the Lantern Festival in Paris.

 Unfortunately, because of coronavirus, the Lantern parade 2020 is cancelled.

Every year since 2015, the lantern parade brings passersby together for our greatest joy. From 5 p.m., grab a lantern in the Little Villette park and walk along with musicians, and light up La Villette park thanks to your handmade lanterns. After you lit the park with your lanterns, the party ends over a cup of spicy Christmas tea to warm up.

This beautiful show takes place at the same time as other light festivals such as Thoiry Lumières Sauvages or the illumination show at the Jardin des Plantes.

This is a Japanese dream walk you can enjoy at La Villette, by the Canal de l'Ourcq. We remember the magnificent fire installation by Compagnie Carabosse that marked the summer 2019 and we can already imagine how happy children will be with this free parade!

By the way, this great lantern parade is provided by Théâtre Les Poussières, a company from Aubervilliers used to lit the streets of Aubervilliers with lanterns made by the inhabitants in October.
