When Christmas is just around the corner, we can see the lights brightening up the Parisian streets. Among the most expected ones, we have the Champs-Elysées Christmas lights, known in the whole world and making this street the most beautiful one in the world.

This year - and like last year - the lights will be red. Company Blachère is committed to an eco-friendly approach and the lights will be used for three to five seasons.
These installations are to be admired all along the avenue, road and pedestrian sides, every day from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., and they won’t use this much energy (11.000 kw/h). Note that the Champs-Elysées will be lighted up all night long on December 24 and 31, 2019.
