Five old army vehicles from World War II, that can also be seen at the liberty procession in Eindhoven every year, drove the ‘Lichtjesroute’ (literally translated as Route of Lights) last night. This is the third time that the ‘Friends of the Lichtjesroute’ foundation organized this tour.
Among others, mayor Van Gijzel, former chairman of PSV, Harry van Raaij en de chairman of light festival Glow Harry Roumen were invited to join the Wheelstour, riding along in the vintage army vehicles.
The ‘Lichtjesroute’ originates from the liberation of Eindhoven in 1944. People in the city welcomed their liberators by putting a candle in their window. The lights in the ‘Lichtjesroute’ commemorate this moment.
The ‘Lichtjesroute’ can be seen every evening until 13 October, from 19.00 hrs until 22.30 hrs.
