Lights float away into the night.

The seaside town of Biarritz has adopted a rather spectacular Asian tradition, holding an annual Sky Lantern Festival! The idea is to light candle lanterns made of rice paper and bamboo rods. These rise up like tiny hot air balloons using the heat of the candle, disappearing into the night sky like a trail of stars. This popular Asian celebration aims to banish worries and bring happiness and good luck. Watch as thousands of lanterns are launched into the night sky representing so many hopes and dreams. It's a truly magical sight.
