Magical Lights in Ghent
Every three years, the charming Belgium city of Ghent is set ablaze with lights during the Ghent Light Festival. The recent 2018 edition brought in nearly one million attendees to experience the works of light artists from across the globe. Over five days, the city’s nights became the backdrop for a surprising spectacle, ingenious installations, spectacular performances and beautiful events, all based on light. This dazzling festival wraps the entire city in brilliant hues of iridescent colors, including the city’s cathedral with more than 55,000 LEDs.
