Gaillac is best known for its wines, and the town claims to have vineyards that pre-date the Roman occupation. But it is also twinned with the town of Zigong in China's Sichuan province, and this winter it is hosting its second Chinese Lantern Festival.
We visited the park on Monday and spent a cold, moonlit evening wandering among a thousand giant illuminated silk sculptures. The festival closes on 6 February 2019. Féerique et magnifique!
