For one night only on Friday October 13th, the Jardin des Lumieres will feature a traditional Chinese dragon dance.

"The dragon dance is done by several people. Each holds a bamboo stick supporting part of a dragon, which can be as long as 15 metres. The dancers make the beast ripple, dance and flutter to chase away the bad spirits."
