Christmas is all about lights, but we’re not just talking fairy lights and baubles, of which you’ll also see a few giant red ones scattered around town by the way.
This year’s light installations in Carouge have taken festive lights to a whole new dimension with creative light displays throughout town.
From 3 huge fish (carp) swimming overhead in Rue Vautier to the stunning magnolias lighting up the Place du Marché, birds in flight on Place de l’Octroi and the amazing enormous birds perched high on the fountains at the Tours de Carouge, these lights are not to be missed.
You’ll also be able to spot light projections of ‘lutins’ or elves on the ground and against the walls of adjacent buildings. More traditional, pretty guirlandes and lanterns adorn the facades of the shops on the Place du Marché and the Rue St Joseph.
The light displays have been especially designed to guide your stroll though the city.
