Notice to latecomers, the Lantern Festival is coming to an end soon. Only ten days left to enjoy it.
As soon as they arrive in the Ritouret park in Blagnac, the visitor takes an astonishing luminous corridor, whose ceiling lined with parchments and lanterns illustrates Chinese pictorial art and stages the thousand facets of the traditional art of living as well as the poetic landscapes of Sichuan. Then, the Lantern Festival continues with a succession of delicate and fantastic scenes, at the heart of Chinese legends such as that of the magic deer Fuzhu or the dynasty of the Ming and Quing.
Notice to latecomers, the Blagnac Lantern Festival is already coming to an end. It offers its penultimate weekend of festivities before its closure scheduled for February 1, the day of the Chinese New Year. Visitors therefore only have about ten days left to discover the 2,500 lanterns that illuminate the lake and the 8 hectares of the Ritouret park.
Knowing that the next two Saturdays are full, it is therefore recommended to come on Friday and Sunday, “and moreover more on Sunday than Friday to benefit from a more fluid and pleasant ride. But the best is still on weekday evenings”, assure the organizers of the Festival.
The Ritouret park is open every evening of the week, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Children are welcomed free of charge up to 11 years old. Tickets (dated and free) can be reserved on the Lantern Festival website or purchased in the Midica, Intersports and BlackStore stores in the region. For the most dizzy, an emergency ticket office is open every evening near the entrance to the Park. Places reserved via https://lanternes.festik.net/ are 16 euros instead of 19 euros on site.
Finally, the Sanitary Pass and the wearing of a mask are compulsory.
