Of all the events that punctuate and highlight every year in the life of the city, ‘Biarritz in Lights’ is a hugely popular event loved by everyone, whether local residents or not. The artists who create this wonderful world of light are among the best in the world, and come here from many different parts of it. Their skills bring dreams to life in the heart of the city, exalt the treasures of its built heritage, and take you on an imaginary journey, as if the Rocher de la Vierge Bridge is transformed into an amazing ship of dreams.
The magic begins in the Public Gardens on 6 December with the opening of an outdoor skating rink that is open every day. Some of the greatest surprises come from the new features of the year, such as the ‘hill of hydrangeas’, entirely redefined by garlands of light, and the Public Gardens themselves, which are also imaginatively lit. The night-time walk around the reinvented city centre takes in the Casino Esplanade and Father Christmas's chalet.
But be sure not to miss the Public Gardens open evening, with its moving performance, the Chinese lantern release on the main beach and the Course des Illuminés night-time run and walk.
