The stunning Light Festival

February 2, 2012
More than half-a-million people were drawn to the Luminaire De Cagna LED-light display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. Luminaire De Cagna became the main attraction of the Festival that included more than 30 other displays and exhibitions. The stunning Romanesque cathedral is constructed of wood, covered with 55,000 LED lights and reaching 28 meters (92 ft.) into the sky.

The structure is the work of Luminarie De Cagna, an Italian family business with a long tradition of building festive and enormous light displays, initially comprised of oil and carbide lamps but later replaced with less hazardous electric lights.
