> Each one imagine and organise their own FAITES DE LA LUMIˆ®RE,
> with its desire, capacities and means. Each FAITES DE LA
> LUMIˆ®RE is autonomous and unique. Further more, everyone take
> care of the website's part which talk about their festival on
> Everywhere it's happening, the success is never denied
> because FAITES DE LA LUMIˆ®RE is adaptable and can be changed
> with local energy.
> If an association desires to organize a light event outside
> the official date, we describe it as a FIESTALUX. If the
> event doesn’Äôt last all the evening, it becomes a
> LUXACTIF. Within this organization, every member of the
> Federation is autonomous and develops is own perspective.
