Top start for the Christmas lights. It was 7:30 p.m. Thursday, November 25, 2021 when Stephane Le Foll, Mayor of Le Mans (Sarthe), lit up his own city from the Place Saint-Nicolas.

It is by simply pressing a tablet that the elected Manceau illuminated the streets of his city.

A thrilled crowd

Immediately, the crowd which had gathered for this occasion exclaims.

“It’s magic”, we can understand by this; “Incredible”, one marvels by it.

A warm and festive atmosphere

Thanks to the garlands that have been mounted in the streets, they are illuminated. Ten minutes earlier, it was a dull, cold feeling that reigned in the streets.

Now there is a warm and festive atmosphere.

You can even hear adults and children laughing peacefully.
