We made the trip to Le Mans to see this display and were not disappointed, it is well worth the effort particularly if you have children.

Absolutely stunning. I've never seen anything quite like it. They even impressed my 20-year old daughter. I believe they are on until the end of August 2013 and again at Christmas. We were meeting friends in Le Mans but even so, "La Nuit des Chimeres" would have been worth the 2 hour drive from our accommodation. There is free parking in Le Mans, north west of the cathedral, by the river, east of Pont Yssoir, along the Quai Louis Blanc. It's a short uphill walk to the old town from there.

For me, this is worth visiting Le Mans for.
A free show which attracts children, couples and families of all ages.
Starting at around 10pm, there are a few locations around the old town which begin to come alive with light. The pictures do not do La Nuit des Chimeres justice!!
A small word of warning: If you want to check out all locations, there are a number of stairs to climb. So wear comfy shoes and take a jumper as it really started to get cold after all the walking stairs.

I like it so much! We walked in old city at evening and we could see different figures on buildings everywhere ! That was really beautiful and made this small city much more intresting.
