For the festive season, the Parc Floral invites families to discover its illuminations, L'Odyssée Lumineuse, from November 28, 2023 to January 7, 2024. A great opportunity to celebrate the Christmas festivities early (or even later), and of course with family and friends.

When the magic of Christmas comes to the Parc Floral... The result is L'Odyssée Lumineuse, the holiday illuminations scheduled to run from November 28, 2023 to January 7, 2024, inviting families to take an immersive stroll at dusk through a multitude of illuminated works, a veritable light show to kick off the festive season! It's an hour-and-a-half-long stroll under the trees "draped in lights", but also along the lake and through the gardens, glittering for the occasion. So take advantage of the last few days to take a look around!

The illuminations will be on display for several weeks, stretching over several kilometers. Lovers of the northern lights are in for a real treat, as theOdyssée Lumineuse features a number of Chinese lanterns, as well as video mapping and sky projections. In all, more than 1,000 handmade sculptures await you. Luminous animals, fantastic creatures and plants... There are plenty of surprises for the whole family to discover as night falls.

A luminous stroll that the editors were able to preview. As for the lanterns, you're in for a treat, as L'Odyssée Lumineuse boasts no fewer than 1,200 of them, promising a long and beautiful stroll! And we're sure you'll enjoy getting lost in the aisles, discovering flora and fauna from the four corners of the globe. As for the lanterns themselves, they are particularly detailed and extremely well crafted, both in terms of fabric and motifs. Every detail is eye-catching, encouraging visitors to admire the work of the little hands who created these veritable works of art.

We particularly appreciated the space dedicated to Japan, with its flora and fauna particularly well highlighted. There's also a stage where you can watch a shadow puppet show, not to mention the appearance of the northern lights in the sky, thanks to mapping on a smoke screen... Great! The only downside: a little more scenography would have been welcome, but the beauty of the lanterns more than makes up for it. In short, a lovely walk for the whole family this winter.
