Emphasis was placed on a “greater energy sobriety”explains Patrice Gausserand, co-organizer of the Lantern Festival. “During the energy crisis, it was important for us not to supply the city’s electric network to the festival. We are going to use three GNR generators that meet the latest European standards: two will run at low speed all the time and one as a backup.”. In the event of a power outage, visitors will be able to continue to follow the lanterns and the installations will not strain an already strained network. This approach is in addition to the festival’s other eco-responsible measures, particularly in terms of waste management.

2,500 light fixtures and 80,000 light bulbs

Born in 2017 as part of the pairing of Gaillac and Zigong, and one of the most important lantern festivals outside of China, according to its organizers, it was first held in Blagnac last winter without being renewed in this suburban town. Due to Toulouse’s financial difficulties. For this new edition in Montauban, more than 180 tons of metal, 50,000 square meters of silk, 30,000 pieces of ceramics and 80,000 lamps were needed to make the festival’s 2,500 light sculptures. All assembled, welded and painted by a hundred craftsmen who arrived in France at the beginning of September, most of them coming from the “city of Chinese lanterns”, Qigong.

“On the banks of the Yangtze” will also be an opportunity to discover the history of Montauban. Lying on the parchment, it will also be noticeable through the rugby movements of certain lantern colors and shapes. For the agglomeration community of Grand Montauban, it was necessary to organize an event that respects the environment, “This aspect [tenant] is very much in the heart of the agglomeration community”claims the municipality of Montalban. “It took about three months to make the lanterns, says Nancy Xiang, director of Creative Workshops. Most of the materials, especially metal, can be reused.”.
