Great things to do in Lyon in October 2018

An autumn in Lyon

It’s autumn, the arrival of the first cold weather in Lyon after the mild September and slightly longer nights. So no more long evenings on the terrace. But there is still a many things to do in October in Lyon.
We can rush into cinemas, especially for the Lumière festival screenings, the opportunity to discover or rediscover heritage films in their original version.
To warm up, you can also do sports by participating in the Run In Lyon race or by taking part in the Nordic Walk weekend.
October is also the beginning of the famous Vogue de la Croix-Rousse (fun fair).
Autumn is the time to start cooking good comfort food.  If you are short of dishes, the great chefs of Lyon are selling their kitchenware this month.
