After more than 10 years of preparation, it is now Mons’ turn to shine – literally.  The opening night sees some 18,000 visitors wearing shiny ponchos made from survival blankets that illuminate the city at night like one gigantic disco ball.

Mons is all about lighting up the night sky. Its opening night features fireworks, fire installations, light installations, live music, and electronic dance music, among other fun attractions.

The Mons Opening Night Festivities start at 6pm on the 24th January 2015.
