Verlichtingsavond “Evening Lights by Night” Bergen

Aug

06

Time: 19:30
Location: Bergen

 

Verlichtingsavond is one of the great events in Bergen, which always takes place on the first Wednesday evening in August. Whole parts of the village will be illuminated by uncountable Chinese lanterns, candles, fairy-lights and all other sorts of festive illumination. All businessmen, shopkeepers and inhibitors illuminate their shops, show-windows, gardens and streets in the most beautiful patterns, or they choose a particular theme. Thousands of people visit Bergen every year to admire this fairy-like spectacle, which started in 1926…again one of the traditions Bergen can be very proud of.
