A few weeks back, Baby Cousin mentioned to Gregory that he had taken his girlfriend to see a 3D light show inside Le Palais des Papes. When Gregory told me, my ears perked up immediately… 3D light show? Avignon? The Popes Palace? Oui, oui, and oui.
France loves it’s light shows. Every year, Lyon puts on it’s fête des lumières in December, and Le Petit Village even tried to get in the act. But since I haven’t seen the show in Lyon yet, and Le Petit Village’s went off in true LPV style (as in it failed with a capital F), there was no way I was missing out on a light show in my favorite city.
We grabbed Honey Jr, Honey’s Honey, and Mrs. London and took off to Avignon, just in time to see the last showing of Les Luminessences d’Avignon of the season.
The show took place inside the courtyard of the palace. When we arrived for the second show of the night, the square in front was already bustling with people. After picking up our tickets, we walked through the palace’s archway and waited for the show to begin.
Les Luminessences d’Avignon was without a doubt one of the most fantastic events I’ve ever seen and I can’t think of a better way to have bid au revoir to summer in Provence (unless of course it had been Les Luminessences de Le Petit Village).
